Can A Foreigner Go In To Nigeria?

Hey all, I was just wondering about something. I am a Malaysian and I have a Nigerian Boyfriend. According to him, it is very difficult for a Foreigner to get into Nigeria. He told me that if I were to get in, I have to be engage to him first and than it will be easier to get into the country. is that true? And how about tourist?

Yes of course you can always visit nigeria but you need a Visa down to that place and i would advance anyone who needs a visa to nigeria to apply directly from our embassy becos there are funny games for naija visa's this days

Your Boy Friend is right and wrong. firstly if you apply for the visa unilaterally your chances of getting it is 20%, because malaysian airport immigration have a strain in relationship with the consular affairs of Nigeria consulate in KL, it is somewhat reciprocated. You will get it unilaterally if you are been sponsored by a reputable firm in Malaysia with a clear purpose of your trip.

However, if you go with your boyfriend to the embassy in KL you would get it at a stroke no questions asked. But! your boy friend would be required to confirm you're his girlfriend and that he will be responsible for your upkeep no documents would be required just your international passport and 2 photographs. The receptionist at the embassy is a Malaysian lady, call your country's information request number for the embassy's number and call her for further information remember to speak malayo for a more friendly outcome, she is nice tho!

Hey Siena, No he wants me to come to Nigeria. He even collected money for it and he say that we are going next month but he says that its better for me to get engage to him so that his family wont have doubts and the immigration will let me pass easily so I dont know. I find that strange,

@ Poster,

I am sorry to tell you this, your boyfriend is not telling the truth, Nigeria welcomes all foreigners, you dont need to be engaged to come to Nigeria, If you have enough cash, all you need to do is to apply for a tourist visa, he might as well send you an invitation from Nigeria, period!

@poster,

You can always apply for visa to travel to Nigeria on the grounds of tourism. But you need to prove beyond reasonable doubt that you have the financial capacity to undertake the journey. You also need to mention the hotel you intend to stay and places you wish to visit when you get to Ngeria. Better still you can go to the Nigerian consulate in Kuala Lumpur and find out other details not mentioned here. Good luck!
