You can also apply for a passport at the Swedish Embassy in Abuja. Always contact the embassy to make an appointment before you travel to the embassy.
Emergency passports issued by the Embassy in Monrovia are in A4 format and are issued for a single trip to Sweden but can in some cases be issued for a specific trip to another country and return. The trip should be imminent.
The temporary passport has a validity period depending on the length of the trip and a maximum of 7 months. You should state the length of the trip and show a flight ticket or booking when applying for an emergency passport.
You must check for yourself whether the country you are going to/transit via accepts a Swedish emergency passport in A4 format. The easiest way to get the information is to contact the respective embassy or travel agency.
