Did you know that having a Nigerian international passport is important?  (updated: 10/13/16)

At times you could find yourself in Nigerian passport visa free countries and you will realize you’ll not have issues for Nigeria visa requirements.

Below, you will find a list of visa free countries for Nigerian passport holders, and visa on arrival countries.

The new 64-page e-passport helps frequent travelers, it is users friendly, prevents ID theft, and even inexpensive for the aged and low income earners in Nigeria. The Nigerian passport also follows the international guidelines and the cost for the new e-passport for people at the age of 18yrs and above is N18,750.

Since the introduction of the new e-passport, many have been confused how to use the Nigerian passport and I must let you know that the previous e-passport is 32pp; while the new one is 64pp and it is strictly for frequent travelers like you.

Though, keep in mind that, it does not cancel the 32 pp Nigeria Passport. You can continue to use the old one until it expires, before migrating to the new e-passport with 64pp.

In regards to the visa free countries for Nigerian citizens, you need to be aware that there’s a required length of time that you can stay in these countries without a visa, when the indicated time expires, you’ll be required to obtain a boarding visa.
