Getting a Nigeria Visa Visa requirements differ depending on where you are traveling to and the goal of your journey. Visitors to Nigeria generally require a visa if they are not from one of those visa-free nations. All travelers to Nigeria have to hold a passport for six months at least. A good reason to have a six-month-old passport is really that if you're denied a visa, then it will not affect your ability to re-enter the nation. Prior to applying for an Nigeria Visa, you will need to prove that you're indeed traveling for company rather than as some sort of holiday. If you plan on visiting the country for vacation, you will need just a work visa. This visa will allow you to remain in the country however, you will not be able to leave and go back to the country until you complete work. You will also have to get a return ticket and a proof of payment from a work site or job.
