For US citizens a passport and a Nigerian visa to enter the country are required. In most cases, visas cannot be obtained on arrival at the airport. Promises of entry into Nigeria without a visa are strong indicators of fraudulent commercial schemes in which the perpetrators seek to exploit the foreign traveler's illegal presence in Nigeria through threats of extortion or bodily harm. Moreover, you cannot legally depart Nigeria unless you can prove, by presenting your entry visa, that you entered Nigeria legally.

ItsEasy maintains the visa requirements to all countries, including nigeria. Use the widget above to see your particular requirements for visiting nigeria based upon your citizenship and state of residence in the USA.
