Visa & Passport Requirements for Nigeria

AfricaNigeriaVisa & Passport Requirements for Nigeria

To enter Nigeria, foreign people who are not citizens of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) must apply for a visa. This may be acquired online and then finalized in Nigerian embassies, high commissioners, and consulates throughout the globe. In certain countries, such as the United Kingdom, a service provider is also utilized for visa applications.

Nigerian visas are costly, requiring numerous payments to be paid to various agencies. An applicant in the United Kingdom will pay a USD164 cost online, followed by GBP20 for the High Commission and GBP75 for OIS Services , which will handle the visa. The cost of mailing, delivering, or retrieving the passport is additional.

If you need a visa to enter Nigeria, you may be able to apply for one at a British embassy, high commission, or consulate in the nation where you lawfully live if no Nigerian diplomatic station exists. The British embassies in Pristina and Sofia, for example, accept Nigerian visa applications (this list is not exhaustive). British diplomatic missions charge GBP50 to handle a Nigerian visa application, plus an additional GBP70 if the Nigerian authorities need the visa application to be forwarded to them. If the authorities in Nigeria communicate with you directly, they may opt to impose an extra cost.
