Business Visa Application Requirements for a Nigeria Visa

  1. Personal Appearance

    The consulate requires you to make a personal appearance to obtain your visa. For this reason A Briggs is unable to assist you with your visa application. We recommend that you contact the consulate directly to obtain the most current forms and requirements before making your personal appearance at:

    Embassy of Nigeria
    3519 International Court, NW
    Washington, DC 20008
    Tel: (202) 800 7201

    It is important to note that most consulates and embassies are only open to the public during the morning hours. Please take these hours into consideration when contacting the consulate about your visa application.
