How long does it take NYSC to approve relocation applications?

The time it takes the NYSC management to approve or reject relocation or redeployment application depends on the reasons the application was submitted.

Most people think it always take long time before the NYSC management will act on the application, but that assertion is completely wrong.

In fact, after submitting your relocation application on camp, the camp, the officials will begin immediately to verify the documents.


If the reason for your relocation is on health ground, maybe one or two illness that needs urgent attention, the NYSC Officials will relocate you immediately even if it’s after one day of submitting your application to them. That means you can leave camp after two days.


If your reason is on marital ground, and you are nursing mother or a pregnant woman, the duration for your relocation approval would also be instant.

Please, be informed that NYSC will not relocate you only because you are a nursing mother or a pregnant woman; without properly married to a man. In that case, you would be required to produce marriage documents.


If the reason of your redeployment is on security grounds, it is likely that they would hold you until after after 21 days in the orientation camp.


If you relocation is based on other reasons, I am sorry because you are very much likely not to be granted relocation.

The duration of NYSC relocation is not always very long and the management would not want to keep you for long for no tangible reason.

Note: If you applied on Health or marital grounds with fake documents, NYSC will not approve your relocation application if they detect your documents are fake.

They will keep pending your application until you forget that you even apply.
