A Letter of Consent [consent letter] is a Legal document that gives a Legal Authorisation from the issuer to the person issued to obtain certain services.
For the purposes of applying for a Nigerian ePassport Application Process, the Father of the Child/minor is expected to issue the Letter of Consent [Consent Letter].
In the case that the Mother is named as the Legal Guardian or Sole Guardian of the minor child, the Mother would be expected to issue the Letter of Consent [Consent Letter] with an evidence of the Court Order nominating her as such.
Well before you know why you need a Letter of Consent, you must first know what a Letter of Consent is, so you need to read the following very carefully.
In order to answer your question on “Why do I need a Letter of Consent?” I would say that you need a Letter of Consent to fulfil the requirements for a Nigerian ePassport as stipulated by the Nigeria Immigration Service. And this is only needed for Children or Minors, when applying for either a Nigerian ePassport or Visa to Nigeria.
If you can get all these documents and sort them as per the Nigerian ePassport checklist for Minors, you would be doing yourself much good, as you would have a stress-free visit.
