Nigeria Visa Application Procedure

To be eligible to enter Nigeria, citizens of most countries must obtain a visa in advance. The following are the main procedures for applying for a Nigerian visa:

  1. Decide the visa type you need. Make sure that the category of visa you selected is suitable for your purpose in Nigeria.
  2. Gather requirements. Be familiar with all the requirements for the visa.
  3. Apply online. Complete the NIS Online Visa Application and print out the completed form.
  4. Pay the fee and print out the payment receipt.
  5. Affix 2 passport-sized photographs (35mm x 40mm) with plain white background.
  6. Submit the Application with the completed form and attached requirements to the Nigerian Mission or VAC.
  7. Have a visa Interview. There might be a scheduled interview depending on the visa type and/or if it is the first time you apply.

Nigerian Visa Photo Requirements

According to the application procedure, you need to prepare 2 identical passport-sized visa pictures when applying for your Nigerian visa. There are several regulations for the two pictures, including:

  • Size. The Nigerian visa application photo size must be 35mm x 45 mm.
  • Head height. Your head height in the picture should be 31 to 36 mm. The distance from the top of the hair to the top of the photo should be 3-5 mm.
  • Paper color. The photograph should be in color.
  • Background color. Nigerian visa photo background must be white.
  • Photo quality. Your visa picture should be clear and in sharp focus. 
  • Try not to tilt your head and keep it in the center of the picture.
  • A neutral facial expression is required.
  • Keep your eyes open and mouth closed.
  • Do not wear any hats and headdresses, except for religious ones.
  • The photo should be taken within the last 6 months and without any alteration.

Common Mistakes in Nigerian Visa Photos

Learning from others' lessens can prevent us from making the same mistakes. If you want to obtain a high-quality Nigerian visa photo, take some time to read these common errors people tend to make in their visa pictures.

  • Wear a smile, laugh, grin or frown. All you need to do is to relax and keep a neutral expression.
  • Shadows appear in your photo. Any shadows are not allowed in your Nigerian visa photo, so please take your picture in a place with adequate light. Besides, taking your photo during the daytime is also an apt option.
  • Wear in white. The background color of your photo should be white. Therefore, if you wear clothes of a similar color, you might blend in with the background.
  • Your eyes are covered by your sunglasses, tinted glasses, or the reflection caused by your transparent glasses lenses.
  • Put on hats or head coverings except for religious reasons. You are not permitted to cover your head if you are not a religious beliver. So please take off your headgear when taking your pictures.
  • Your hair covers your eyes, eyebrow, ears, or your face.

Advice for Your Makeup in Your Nigerian Visa Photos

Many people may wonder whether they can apply makeup or not when taking a Nigerian visa picture. Actually, you can wear your daily makeup. Here are some suggestions for you.

  • Avoid wearing heavy makeup. Applying for too many cosmetics not only makes you look old but also hides your realistic appearance so that others can not identify you from your picture, causing you a lot of trouble.
  • Try not to use too many highlights or shiny eye-shadow products. Highlight or shiny cosmetic products can easily cause shine on your face and lead to reflection in your photo, which is also not permitted in your Nigerian visa photo.
  • Apply natural lipstick and avoid choosing the bright red color.
  • Apply foundation similar to your skin color.

Can I Take My Nigerian Visa Photos in Person?

Of course, you can take your visa picture personally! A large number of people are taking their visa photos at home, and you are welcome to join them. Read these tips and you can start now!

  • Find a photographic device that can take a high-quality photo for you. You can pick your digital camera or your smartphone.
  • Stand in front of a plain white wall and set a proper camera distance.
  • Take your photo during the daytime to make good use of the natural light.
  • Wear decent clothes that are not white.
  • Ask your families or friends to help you or use a tripod to fix your snapping devices.
