Visa-free Countries for Nigerians: How To Visit Them

Although, there are 40 countries that you can visit without a visa. You would need to put some things in order before you proceed on travelling out of the country. You will need:

  • International Passport
  • Proof of sufficient funds
  • Accommodation
  • Return ticket

Even though there are countries that you can travel to without applying for a visa, you’ll be required to pay for the visa with the above requirement before you gain entry into such country.

Travelling to a visa-free country takes out the extra travel cost attached to a visa while still enjoying the travel experience. Also, it is important your passport is valid for at least 6 months from your date of arrival.

Note: Myanmar, Rwanda, and Sao Tome & Principe all require visas, but their visas can be obtained online.

          please I am a citizen of ivory coast and I based in Nigeria I have a visa to India but airlines refused to board me, reason is that I should go back to my country and board and I don’t have sufficient funds with me. So I want u to do inquiries enough concerning this.

          1. Stanley

            Hi u still in Nigeria? It’s absurd that airline will say that ,but I have a friend whose is Ivorian and lives in Nigeria ,am sure she has traveled from Nigeria to south Korea and is planing another travel In 2019. Contact me and I will link u two.

          2. Prince Nelly Skido

            I am a Nigerian leaving in Abidjan but i will be happy to travel to Seycehlles so what are the requirements ?

          3. Lucky

            I disagreed with you except if your INDIA visa is fake, but if your INDIA visa is 100% original and you have your pocket money with you, your returned flight ticket, your hotel reservation, there is no airline that will refuse to board you, you can board flight from any part of the world as long as you have your original visa and other stuff to back up your traveling, then you are good to go, so check yourself very well again.

        2. ikem

          please can I have ur contact for help and guild


          I want to travel to Ghana and work. How can I achieve that. I’m Kennedy Eze.

    2. Emese Prince James

      we understand your point.
      in all honesty, Barbados is logically visa free to Nigeria as well. 99.9% of applicants in Barbados have their visas easily without stress. the 0.1% refusal is due to insufficient fund and return ticket. Nigeria Embassy in Barbados simply need you to present yourself at the embassy for the visa just for screening, this is done at the point of entering into Barbados for Nigerian citizens as well.

      1. Annie Billion

        how do you leave from Nigeria to Barbados or Georgia in terms of buying a ticket and the sufficient cash stuff is it in cash or your Nigerian statement of account? please reply.

        1. Anonymous

          It easy. Either buy American Dollars for up to but not more than $10,000. If you carry more than $10,000 cash, you will FACE serious questioning and investigation by border security.

          You can also buy a United States dollars ” Travelers Cheque ”.This is acceptable anywhere in the world. I even used it in China, Malaysia, Thailand. If you lose it, you can claim it back. It’s a legal tender and more secure than carrying cash. If you lose cash, it’s gone forever.

          Showing bank statements may not really convince a border officer/immigration. They want to see you have REAL money to spend. With cash and/or traveler’s cheque, they will stamp you in immediately.

    3. Ebuka
