    The Federal Government on Wednesday knocked travel company, Wakanow, for allegedly procuring Passports for applicants at “outrageous amounts”.


    The Nigeria Immigration Service in a statement signed by its Public Relations Officer, Sunday James, said no travel agency was authorised by the government to “charge or procure” Passports for travellers.


    The Service accused Wakanow of charging applicants N57,000 for a 64-Page Five-Year validity Passport which costs N35,000. The Service also alleged that the travel company charged applicants N95,000 for a 64-Page Ten-Year validity Passport which costs N70,000.


    The NIS, therefore, advised Passport applicants to apply through its website and not through third parties “who are out there to defraud them of their hard-earned money”.
