Nigeria Visa – How to Apply for A Nigerian Visa

Is Nigeria your next destination? If so, you will need to obtain a Nigeria Visa in order to visit Nigeria. Keep in mind, if you are contacted with information stating that you will be promised entrance into Nigeria without a visa, be aware that this information is untrue and is usually associated with fraudulent action.

You can be extorted when you enter Nigeria without a visa by the same party that promised you entrance into Nigeria without a visa. Also, in order to exit Nigeria, you will have to provide evidence that you entered Nigeria with a legal entrance visa.

To obtain a business visa, you should provide everything needed for a tourist visa with the exception of a bank statement. A Business letter, and Business invitation will replace the bank statement. A business invitation should include an introduction of the applicant, the nature of the business that will be conducted on the trip, and state the type of visa and preferred validity length.
