Visa Free Countries for Nigerians

As a Nigerian citizen and holder of the Nigerian passport, you are free to visit certain countries without worrying over visa issues because these countries do not require a visa upon entry — as long as you have your passport with you.

Provided you hold a valid Nigerian international passport, you can visit some countries as a Nigerian without obtaining a visa for those countries here in Nigeria. According to the 2014 Visa Restrictions Index by Henley & Partners, there are 49 visa free countries for Nigerians.

While some of these countries require that you obtain a visa immediately on arrival, some allow you stay for a specified period before you will be required to obtain a visa, and some will not even require that you obtain a visa, no matter how long you spend.
