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). I strongly advise that you confirm the information below before making any travel plans as “Sassy Funke” is not responsible for any error that arise from the use of the information below

Here is the list of Visa-Free countries for Nigerians (by continent):


(1) Benin Republic (Visa free)

      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.
