This is necessary so that you can be well inform of any other new development such as passport machine breakdown, public holiday in Sweden, any latest requirement that would have happened after the written of this document. 3 GOING TO THE EMBASSY Kindly prepare ahead. The embassy address is TYRGATAN 8 114 27 Stockholm Sweden. It is like five (5) min from the Stockholm central train station by metro. The best option is to go by metro for cost saving. Also, it is necessary to arrive at the embassy before 10 AM. As it is “first come, first serve”. For the resident in Finland, the ship cruise might be the cheapest means, however, consider the arrival and departure time before making your decision. The option I would have suggested is travelling by air. You can leave with the first flight in the morning and return with the last flight in the night. If you are using Arlanda airport in Sweden, it is like 50 minutes drives to the center by bus. You can buy a day ticket from the tourist center. With this ticket you can go to Stockholm center and also use it for the metro to the embassy. And the ticket is valid for 24 hour on any route in Stockholm. From where you will drop from the metro, the embassy is like 3 min walk.

It is likely that you will be given a paper, containing a numeric number. It is with this number that you will be called in Turn by turn for the biometric exercise. The biometric exercise involves taking of your picture, finger prints and presenting those four documents which has been mentioned in the previous section.

However, a sample of the letter will be shown to you. But you can write the letter ahead to make the process faster. 5 CONCLUSION The process of applying for passport re-issue is quite simple and straight forward and you do not need to pay any agent or person to do so for you. Also, the staffs at Nigeria embassy at Stockholm are welcoming, willing to help and supportive provided you have the necessary document. Therefore I will advise that you get all necessary documents and information before going to the embassy. By the matter of fact, the staffs at the passport section are hardworking people. They can go the extra mile for an applicant to get its passport. Also it is important to state that there is no corruption at the embassy and you do not need to pay any illegal fee to anybody. Just walk in, pick a number, go in for biometric, wait for few minute and collect your passport. It is a simple process provided you make the necessary plan and follow the due process.
