Visa issues - Nigeria, Niger, Chad??
Posted March 14th, 2012 - 4:23 pm by from Haskovo, Bulgaria (Permalink)
Hey all,
I am currently hitchhiking through Africa and i am in Kinshasa now. I really need info about visas further north because here in the Nigerian embassy they don't issue visas for non-residents so i got worried. Where is better chance to get Nigerian visa - Congo Brazzaville or Cameroon? Does someone have an experience with this visa and the visa for Niger as well? What about the Chad visa (in case i can't get the nigerian)? Any closed borders between these countries in order: Cameroon-Nigeria-Niger or Cameroon-Chad-Niger?

Thanks a lot for any help!

how does end up you trip to Nigeria did you get the visa at last?
I´m in the middle of preparation of my trip, hitchhiking from Marocco to South Africa along the west coast and beck along the east coast.
Oh, I heve meny questions but visa bothers me most. What about other countries like Ivory Coast, Cameroon, Liberia, Gabon, Angola and on? Was it posible to get a visa on arrival, and how was hitchhiking in Congo (and other counries?).
I even heard we(from formel communist europe but now part of EU) have more promlems to get visa not like other EU members.

Wish you luck for your next journey
