Sample of the Business Travel Requirements for a Nigeria Visa for Australian Citizens

  1. Nigerian Online Specifications

    Part of the visa application requires the applicant to complete an online visa form through the Nigerian Immigration Service website. During this process the applicant is required to pay the visa fee directly to the Nigerian government by credit card which also includes logging in or creating a Gmail, Yahoo or Open ID account. This visa fee is separate to the visa fee included on the CIBTvisas site which is the adminstration charge levied by the Nigerian High Commission in Canberra. 

    There are anti-fraud measures in place for the use of credit cards on the online application site such as registration of the cardholder if the first and last name on the card does not match the applicant's name. Full details are provided online prior to commencing the application once logged in.
