Brief History About Nigeria Immigration Service

The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) was extracted from the Nigeria Police (NP) in August, 1958. It was at that time referred to as the Immigration Department and headed by the Chief Federal Immigration Officer (CFIO).

The Immigration Department was established by an Act of Parliament (Cap 171, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria) on August 1, 1963 when Alhaji Shehu Shagari was the Minister of Internal Affairs (a position now referred to as Minister of Interior).

The initial Law regulating Immigration Duties was the Immigration Act of 1963 which was amended in 2014 and again in 2015 (Immigration Act, 2015).

  • Global Passport intervention in line with the Federal Government Policy on Citizenship Diplomacy
  • Forensic laboratory services for the examination of travel documents and monetary instruments
