Nigeria Visa

All U.S. citizens are required to have a Nigeria visa for entry into the country. All visas need to be obtained in advance from the Nigeria Embassy or Consulate.

Visas are not issued on arrival in Nigeria. It is important that you obtain the appropriate type of visa based on the purpose of your travel.

Without it, you will not be allowed to enter the country. You must also present a valid visa when you leave Nigeria to show that you entered the country legally.
