Had to do one from Nigeria in 2006. He doesnt have to go to a police station, he needs to go to alagbon close (i think) close to the old Federal Secretariate l.e if he is in Lagos.

He could also get it done at Abuja too for half that amount if not less. By the way i dont think it can be done at a police station anyway, he should be carefull.

Cost was N5000 for same day service. The standard Nigerian shenanigans apply though to make that happen.

Thank you.

My husband went last week to the station you are being referred to by others here. The cost was $50 and he tipped the officer to get the papers processed quicker, but still he can get it in one day. His medicals which he's taken twice cost $300 both times, including today...I don't know where the other's are getting the lower cost??? Lucky them! :)

My husband was told 5,500N at first. He told them it was too much and they lowered it to 4,000N - NO TIPPING necessary and got the PCC in less than 4 hours.
