Nigeria, as a country, is located in the western part of Africa with a population of over 200 million people. In this post, we’ll give you a rundown of which places you may visit more easily without having to go through the hassle of applying for an embassy visa before you leave. The Nigerian passport was placed 90th in terms of mobility freedom by the Henley Report.
The standard admission period for travellers is 30 days, but in other nations, it may be longer. For instance, you are permitted to stay for 90 days if you go to Benin, Chad, Gambia, Haiti, Saint Kitts, and Nevis, or Senegal. In the meantime, you are permitted to stay for a whopping 180 days if you are visiting Barbados or the Dominican Republic.
For entry into any of these nations, you would need to have a current Nigerian international passport. Here are the countries you can visit visa-free as a Nigerian.
