Nigerian Visa Requirements
The requirements for a Nigerian visa vary for different nationalities, however, there are some common denominators irrespective of country or nationality. Below are some of the basic requirements necessary to obtain a Nigerian visa:
- An international passport with unused pages and a validity of more than 6 months
- Evidence of sufficient funds to cover the duration of your visit to/stay in Nigeria
- Payment of Visa fee applicable to visitors from your country of residence
The Visa-on-Arrival Scheme
Nigeria also has a Visa-on-Arrival scheme for travelers who may be interested. The Visa-on-Arrival scheme allows you to travel from your country of residence to a pre-approved Nigerian port of entry, where a Nigerian visa would be affixed to your international passport and the Nigeria Immigration Service officials would stamp your passport and allow you to gain entry into the country.
The application process usually takes about 2 to 4 working days, however after the Visa-on-Arrival has been approved by the Nigeria Immigration Service, there is only a 14-day entry period into Nigeria. Hence, all international attendees to Moonshot need to ensure that their flight to Nigeria is scheduled within the 14-day entry period from the day of approval of the Visa-on-Arrival.
