Nigerians are in almost every country of the world presently. While some have been lucky enough to get a fresh start at life in a foreign country, others have not found it easy relocating abroad.
Many Nigerians are not strangers to the fact that some foreign countries make it difficult for migrants to come in. A typical example is the travel ban placed on the country as a result of fraudulent activities or terrorism.
However, it might come as a shock that even some fellow African countries pose a lot of difficulty for Nigerians who are trying to travel there. Due to certain factors, gaining entry into any of these countries as a Nigerian proves such a herculean task.
Some good news is that there are 17 African countries that give visa-free entry to Nigerian passport holders. Apart from those 17, however, these 5 listed below have proved to be the hardest countries on the continent for Nigerians to travel to.
In 2018, there was a surge of accounts about Nigerians travelling through the desert to get to Libya so they can migrate to Europe as well as getting entangled slave rings while in Libya.
Earlier this year, 160 Nigerians were repatriated from Libya. So, it’s understandable that individuals with questionable or unclear motives for wanting to travel to Libya are rejected.
2. South Sudan
South Sudan doesn’t offer visa-on-arrival for Nigerians. You have to visit the embassy and apply for a visa like any other foreign country, and if you don’t have the appropriate documents or reason for travel, you can get rejected.
Botswana is a country famous for wildlife experiences in the Southern part of Africa. To travel here as a Nigerian, you need to apply for a tourist visa.
In fact, their official website says: “All Citizens of Commonwealth countries do not require visa except those from Bangladesh, Cameroon, Ghana, India, Nigeria, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka.”
Out of the many African countries that do not need visas to travel to this small land-locked country in South Africa, Nigeria is NOT one of them. You need to apply for a tourist visa at their embassy too.
Namibia has actually jumped to the top of countries Africans want to explore. However, as a Nigerian traveller, the process is not exactly easy.
