What is a Visa for Nigeria?
If you want to go to Nigeria for a holiday or business trip, you must apply for a regular visa before entering the country. The visa is a sticker issued by the Nigerian government and affixed to the passport. With this visa you are allowed to enter the territory of Nigeria. This visa is usually issued by the Embassy of Nigeria in The Hague and will be checked during passport control in Nigeria. If you arrive by plane, the first visa check will probably already take place at the airport.
Our staff will work professionally to ensure that your Nigeria visa application is presented flawlessly at the Nigerian Embassy so you can travel with confidence.
Types of visas for Nigeria
Various visas are available for Nigeria. The type of visa depends on your destination. The most common are a visa for tourist reasons or a visa for business purposes. However, you also have a Temporary Work (TWP) visa, Subject to Regulation (STR) visa and a private visa.
The purpose of your trip determines the type of visa you need to apply for. If you are unsure which visa is most applicable to your situation, do not hesitate to contact us! Our employees can advise you on this.
Apply for the Nigeria visa
To obtain a visa, you must supply your own file for each person with the correct documents, together with your passport and an official passport photo. This can often go wrong, because the Nigerian government wants the file to be in order. If this is not the case, the visa can be refused. That is why it is important that you submit your application correctly the first time. On our website you can see per visa what the requirements are and what conditions they must meet. It also explains what you should pay extra attention to.
Keep in mind that the embassy is always free to request additional documents from you for your application, without providing any explanation.
Once you have provided all the essentials, our visa specialists will check your application for completeness and correctness before we go to the Nigerian Embassy with your passport and documents. This ensures that the application is delivered in accordance with conditions and prevents the chance of rejection due to errors in your application.
As soon as we have received all documents from you and have confirmed them to you as complete and in accordance with conditions, Traveldocs can – of course in consultation with you – schedule an appointment. You must travel to The Hague yourself. However, guidance from us will be available to help you during this process.
In fact, you only need to donate fingerprints and a facial scan. Once this is done, the processing time you choose will start running.
Once the visa has been issued, Traveldocs will collect your passport containing the visa for you from the Nigerian embassy. You will then receive it again at your home or office address using the desired delivery method.
