Obtaining An Iceland Visa In Nigeria: How To Apply
It is important you know that there’s no Iceland embassy in Nigeria and as such, there’s officially no place in Nigeria you can obtain its visa.
However, there’s a twist around it. Iceland is a Schengen state, so a valid visa to any other country that is part of the Schengen agreement would grant you access into the Iceland borders.
So, the British High Commission or any other Schengen country’s consulate here in Nigeria should do.
The requirement would defer depending on the type of visa and purpose of travel.
However, you can check the below list to have an overview. Enquire from the embassy to know the complete list of documents applied to you.
