Diplomatic authentication

Only original documents issued by the Nigerian or Cameroonian authorities and authenticated by the Nigerian or Cameroonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs can be given diplomatic authentication by the Embassy.

Submission of documents for authentication is preferred by the client in person.

Alternatively, in case the client is not staying in Nigeria at the time of the submission, they may authorize a proxy person with a formal, notarized (by notary public or lawyer) letter of authorization to submit and collect the document(s). The letter of authorization is expected to contain the document or list of documents submitted, the procedure applied for, the personal details of the client as well as the proxy and the period of validity of the letter. The authorization is valid only in original copy and together with the copy of the ID or international passport data page of the client, as well as with the original ID or international passport of the proxy.

The fee of the diplomatic authentication is the NGN equivalent of 25 EUR per document. Please find more details about the current fees on the Consular Fees and Rates page.
