Duration of NYSC Relocation: How long it takes to get approval

In this article we shall look at the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC Relocation Duration – how long it takes NYSC to approve your relocation.

NYSC Relocation Duration

The time it takes the NYSC management to approve or reject relocation application depends on the reasons by which the application is submitted.

Most people think it usually take long time before the NYSC management will act on the application. But that assertion is completely wrong, in this article I will explain the duration of NYSC relocation application.

Duration of NYSC Relocation Applications

After submitting NYSC relocation application, the NYSC officials will begin to process your request immediately. NYSC will check the documents submitted to them to decide how urgent it will take. The duration of NYSC relocation is usually two weeks depending on the reasons of applications.

How long does nysc relocation takes?

The normal duration is 14 days depending on the ground you submit the application. Below is the duration of NYSC relocation on 3 different grounds;

1. Duration of NYSC Relocation on Health ground

If the reason for relocation is on health ground, the normal duration is two weeks. But if the illness is serious, NYSC will relocate you immediately. So, it means your relocation application can be approved within two days.

2. Duration on Marital ground

If the reason for relocation application is on marital ground, and you are a nursing mother or a pregnant woman, you may get an instant relocation approval.

So, those who apply in camp will get approval after orientation camp. But if you apply after camp, you relocation duration is two weeks.

Please, be informed that NYSC will not relocate you only because you are a nursing mother or a pregnant woman. They only relocate those who are genuinely married. In that case, you need to produce marriage documents.

3. Duration on Security ground

If the reason for your relocation is on security grounds, it is likely that NYSC would hold you until after after 21 days in Orientation camp. But if you apply after camp, it usually take 14 days.

NYSC Relocation on Other ground

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

The duration of NYSC relocation is usually two weeks, and the NYSC management would not want to keep you for long for no reason.

Note: If you apply on Health or marital grounds with fake documents, NYSC will not approve your relocation. They will keep ‘pending’ your application until you forget that you have applied.

    • NYSC can only relocate you base on the following ground
      1. Health
      2. Marital
      3. Security
      So, phobia or no phobia is none of their business

    I am applied for relocation which has been approved but I am yet to pay or print the relocation letter yet because I am comfortable with where I was posted to before the relocation. I would love to know if the relocation approval will be automatically canceled if I don’t pay or print it out after some time. Thank you.

I wish to know how I may cancel my relocation, I was granted emergency relocation based on health grounds but after recuperating from the ailment I now wish to return to my first posting . I haven’t confirmed the relocation on my dash board though, I don’t know if it would have been withdrawn automatically as this would be good news. Thank you
