Travelling with a Nigerian passport is quite a task. With the Nigerian passport ranking 101 out of 199 countries, there are not many visa-free countries for Nigerian nationals.

1. Barbados

The island country in the Caribbean allows Nigerians to visit and stay without a visa for up to six months. However, there are no direct flights from Nigeria to Barbados, so you may need a transit visa depending on the country you pass through and how long you’re in transit. 

Visiting Barbados as a Nigerian doesn’t require a visa but the Barbados Immigration Department will need to see a valid passport and a return ticket before you’re allowed entry into the county. 

2. Benin Republic

Fiji is a South Pacific nation and archipelago, north of Auckland, New Zealand. There are about 300 islands and 540 islets scattered across the country, so there is sure a lot of attractions. Good thing Nigerians don’t require a visa to visit the nation, and they can stay for up to 120 days.

8. Cape Verde

Nigeria visa free countries

Nigerians can visit the island nation of Cape Verde, off the west coast of Africa and stay for 30 days without a visa. Of course, there are still requirements to fulfil, and one of them is registering online at least five days before you arrive in the country.

9. Ghana

Nigeria visa free countries

Nigerian visiting Ghana can do so and stay for up to 90 days without a visa. We have Ghana’s visa-exempt policy for ECOWAS citizens to thank for this. Additionally, you can extend your stay by sending an application to the immigration authorities in the country. 

10. Micronesia

Nigeria visa free countries

Micronesia is an island country in Oceania. Although they have no embassy in Nigeria, Nigerian citizens can travel to the country without a visa for 30 days. Also, it is important to note that there will be three stopovers before you get to this country, and you will be required to provide proof of vaccination for cholera, smallpox and Yellow fever.
