Can I get a refund of my visa application fee?
The money that you paid is an visa application fee and every applicant is subject to this fee. This fee is non-refundable and will not be returned if you fail to establish that you qualify for a Nigerian visa. The Embassy has no authority to refund an application fee. If you plan to reapply for a visa here or elsewhere, you will be required to pay the visa fee every time you apply.

Why wasn’t I informed when I contacted the Embassy that I would not get a visa?
Every application for a visa is based on its own merits. By e-mail, telephone or in person, it is only possible to give general information regarding the visa application process and suggest the types of documents that might help you to demonstrate your eligibility for the visa. The Embassy cannot pre-adjudicate visa cases by e-mail, telephone or in person. The visa application instructions clearly state that there is no guarantee that you will receive a Nigerian visa if you choose to apply.

What do I do if my passport gets missing with a valid Nigerian visa inside?
A new application for visa would need to be submitted with the new passport, appropriate visa fees, a police report and other required documents.
Will I get a visa if unable to submit dates for travel and accomodation ?
All persons or groups applying for a visa will be required to establish a timeline for travel (estimate or exact dates, accomodation plans, planned duration of stay and proof of financial evidence if you will be covering these costs personally. If you plan on staying with a host, then a letter to the Embassy from the host with details of cost to be covered will suffice.

My passport expired but the Nigerian visa in it is still valid. Do I need to apply for a new visa?

If there was a name change as a result of marriage or other reasons, please have supporting documents (eg marriage certificate) to back up your claim.
What do you mean by evidence of current employment status?
This is simply a letter from your present employer/company confirming that you are currently employed. The letter should indicate your current position, how long you have worked at the company and that you will return to your position after your trip.
