Entry Requirements

Citizens of Economic of West African States (ECOWAS) do not require entry permits into Nigeria.

All visitors not exempted from entry permits are advised to apply and obtain appropriate visas from the nearest Nigerian Mission – Embassy, High Commission or Consulate before entry into Nigeria as visas cannot be issued at the port of entry. Early application is advisable to avoid delay.

Guidelines on how to apply for your visa is available from the Nigeria Immigration authorities.
