Hello,

As Nigeria is not a convention country, you will need to apply for an adoption order in the UK courts to complete the adoption process before your adopted children will be entitled to British passports.

I would suggest that you see a Family lawyer who deals with adoption orders to assist you in making an application in the UK.

Hope this helps
