Happy February! Hope you all are having a fantastic year so far. I have decided on providing to you all some very useful resource, that is a list of all countries that NIGERIANS, yes we NIGERIANS are allowed to travel to “VISA FREE” or “VISA-ON-ARRIVAL”

VISA-FREE – means that u can enter the country without a visa for a specified period of time

VISA-ON-ARRIVAL – means that you need a visa to enter, but can apply for and receive the visa when you show up in the country at the border

NOTE that this list is subject to change as countries can decide to change entry requirements for Nigerian Nationals (I literally called up the consulates for most of the countries below as I am don’t quite trust a lot of the information floating on the internet).

    1. Hello Segun, I believe you will need a visa before. I don’t think Nigerian is on the list of those that can apply on arrival. I would check airport facilities as there might be some lounges with beds you can pay for. Hope that helps.

  4. Thank you so much Funke,
    I contacted a hotel at SAW Airport, he told me I should be able to get because of my Qatar Residence permit but not 100 % sure, I would appreciate the lounge info.
    Thank you for this great platform.
