NIGERIA – New CERPAC Centres Established

The Federal Ministry of Interior (“FMI”) has commissioned twenty-eight new Combined Expatriate Residence Permit and Alien Card (CERPAC) production centres across Nigeria.

All but two Nigerian states will now host a CERPAC production centre, allowing foreign nationals to obtain and renew residence cards more easily. Since the launch of CERPAC in 2002, there have only been eight such centres in the country.

Action Items

  • Foreign nationals in Nigeria who require a CERPAC residence card should attend the CERPAC centre servicing their place of residence.
