Are you thinking about going abroad? Although most countries worldwide do require Nigerians to get a visa before arrival, there are over 50 countries where you can enjoy hassle-free travel, fortunately.

Generally speaking, it’s easiest to travel in Africa where you can visit countries such as Madagascar, Namibia, and Ethiopia with a simple visa on arrival. However, if you are keen to explore a different continent, there are a few options available such as Bolivia in South America or Iran in the Middle East. What’s more, there are several islands in the Caribbean and South Pacific offering easy access to Nigerians too.

If you have a destination in mind for which you need to get a visa before you can travel, make sure you’re clued up on the conditions and requirements before you book your trip.
