Functions of The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS)

The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) was carved out of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) in 1958. At that time, it was called the Immigration Department and carried out its duties under the headship of a Comptroller General (highest rank in the Nigerian Immigration Service).


The service also has various departments under the control of the Federal Ministry of Internal Affairs as well as the Immigration Ordinance of 1958, which guides its operation. Below are the roles/ functions of the NIS:

  1. Managing and overseeing all immigration activities.
  2. Control and border patrol management.
  3. Issuance of all Nigerian travel documents to Nigerians that have to travel out of the country.
  4. Examination of travel documents and monetary instruments.
  5. Effective control of the Sea Ports and the Passport offices.
