Visa-free countries for Nigerian citizens and passport Holders
As a travel freak, I often ask people why they don’t travel or go on vacation. Some of the replies I get each time is, it’s either they don’t have enough money or the difficulties they experience in getting a visa to travel abroad. Do you know there are over forty countries in the world that you can travel to with your Nigerian passport that doesn’t require a visa? Yes! You heard me right.
Nigeria is not just the most popular black nation on earth for no reason. One in every five African you meet is a Nigerian. No wonder Nigeria is referred to as the giant of Africa.
You can visit these countries without any form of restriction provided you are carrying a Nigerian International Passport. Some of these countries may require you to get a visa upon arrival while others do not require you to have a visa during your stay.
Travelling to some of the popular tourist destinations and some top countries can often be difficult. This is due to the fact that some visas are really expensive, the processes are tedious and visa is not even guaranteed after going through those processes.
In cases where you have planned your vacation to a country and all of a sudden the embassy rejected your application. You don’t need to worry. You deserve this vacation, you’ve worked hard for it.
However, because they are visa-free or visa on arrival doesn’t mean you can stay forever. The time required to stay varies from country to country, while some have limited validity others are open for as long as you want to stay.
It doesn’t if it’s a honeymoon, vacation, retreat, wildlife experiences etc these countries offer real value for money.
Things you Should have in Place Before Travelling
1. A valid Nigerian International Passport
2. Proof of Funds sufficient for your trip
3. Return Tickets or proof of return tickets
4. Accommodation: You need to have a place to stay, it could either be a reservation to a hotel or address of someone you are visiting
5. Ensure your passport is valid for the next 6 months
Do not forget that travel and visa requirements can change from time to time without prior notices.
Visa Free Countries for Nigerians
Visa-free countries are countries that you don’t need a visa to visit them. You don’t need to worry about being rejected, all you need to do is to book your flight, get stamped at the airport or the border if you are travelling by road and you are good to go. No hassle, no delays, no rejection, no harassment. However, it will be nice to check with the Nigerian immigration for more information before you make such trips just in the case there is a new change in visa policies, restrictions, sanctions, unrest in the country where you are visiting.
Visa-free also ensures easy travel experience and reduces the cost of travel as you won’t have to pay the huge cost for visa processing.
