Frequently Asked Questions?
How long does it take to get a Nigerian visa? The Nigerian visa centre allows 2 different submission choices, this is either a 2 day express service of a 7 day service. Typically if you apply for a 7 day service, then they will not allow you to change to a 2 day service afterwards. Furthermore, if for whatever reason, the Nigeria embassy reject the visa application, then they will only inform you of the day of release. Ie if there is an issue with the application on a 7 day service, then they will inform of the issue and return the application on the 7th day.
Do I have to have an invite in order to travel to Nigeria? Yes, all visitors to Nigeria will require some form of invite. If it is a business visa, then the company inviting you over must have provide you with an invitation letter.

If it is a tourist/visitor visa, then the person inviting you over must provide a letter inviting you over along with a scanned copy of their passport or their identity card. Please if they are providing an identity card, then both sides must be provided. If it is a TWP / Temporary Work Permit, then you will require a "cablegramme" from the Ministry of Interior in Nigeria.
I can't make payment online via the SWC LLC Global website - can you help? This is common. You must ensure you have an activated "visa" card. If you are not able to use your card (for various reasons) however planning to use our services, then we can certainly make the payment for you (as our card is official registered). The Nigerian SWC LLC global services payment can present many issues, therefore we would advise not using e.g. Mastercard/Amex cards etc. Please call us if you have any issues.
