im sorry but i should have received an answer by now please can you let me know *****@******.***

The reason you are experiencing delay is that you keep posting before I have responded which pushes the question to the back of my list.
This is almost certainly a scam. It has all the hallmarksk.
I don't know why he expects you to pay for this anyway and even if you were willing to do that why he needs your passport is questionable.
Just refuse to send money. This is a classic scam. They befriend people in the West and then send whinging emails asking for funds for some benevolent project or another.
Don't get involved.
Can I clarify anything for you?

No, its not the case. It makes no sense at all.
