The Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria has asked applicants requesting for verification of their license to pay courier fees according to a circular dated 20th of July 2018 . This new requirement will raise applicant’s verification bill to as much as #35,000 depending on the country the verification document is going. Below is the content of the circular:
Courier Service for Dispatch of Verification with the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria
I write to inform all Heads of Department/Section/Unit and Zonal Officers of the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria that henceforth, clients requesting for verification of documents/certificates/licenses with the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria should be responsible for payment of courier services for the dispatch of their processed verification.
By implications, clients should make payment to the courier service of their choice and submit the receipt of payment for courier together with their application forms for verification attached with other supporting documents including remita invoice.
The Council can no longer continue to be responsible for the payment of courier services to the foreign destinations.
Please bring this notice to the knowledge of all your staff.
