Countries That Nigerians Can Visit Without a Visa

0 Comment

Nigerian citizens can visit some countries without a visa in their Nigerian passport. It has become a trend for Nigerians to travel outside the country, especially when a travel visa is not required or when they are not required to hustle or pay hugely for one. That’s why most of them race to Dubai, due to its accessibility. As at last year, Nigerian passport holders enjoy visa-free access to 61 countries in the world. According to Passport Index, this year, Nigerians can visit 44 countries without a visa, where free entry is granted for a fixed period or with visa-on-arrival (issued for a fee), and most of these countries are in West Africa, and some in East Africa.

According to Passport Index, Turkey is one of the countries that allow Nigerians to visit on arrival, however, this is not truly so. If you are Nigerian Passport holder with a USA or UK Visa, you can obtain Turkish visa at the point of entry. If you don’t have a UK or USA visa, you should apply for a Turkish visa at their embassy in Nigeria.

Similarly, Nigerians are allowed to visit Georgia by applying for e-Visa online. However, e-Visa can be granted to passport holders with valid Schengen Visa or valid visa from any of the OECD member countries. The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) (is an intergovernmental economic organisation with some member countries, founded to stimulate economic progress and world trade.
