X-Posted from H-NET List for African History and Culture <H-AFRICA@H-NET.MSU.EDU> From: Joyce Youmans <youmans@MAIL.H-NET.MSU.EDU> ________ REPLY 1 From: "Abosede George" <email@example.com> Subject: Reply: Nigerian Visas (via US Embassy) + LGA access Date: Wed, May 19, 2010 1:41 pm Having just applied for a new Nigerian passport, I know that much of the application process for travel documents is online and the rest of it has to be handed in person at your nearest Nigerian consulate or embassy. When I went in for my passport, there were other people there getting their visas so although I'm a Nigerian citizen and my process is a bit different from yours, I'm fairly certain they all conclude at the same place; your local embassy or consulate. This may be a greater inconvenience to you in North Carolina than to me in New York but that's how it is. On your other question about how to meet local government authorities, I can't help you much. Good luck. AG ________ REPLY 2 From: "Christopher J. Lee" <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Wed, May 19, 2010 1:37 pm I went to Nigeria this past December and, after finding the Nigerian Embassy's website unhelpful, used the following visa service: http://www.g3visas.com/v2/index.html There is a service charge in the range of $100 on top of the visa fee itself (also around $100) plus FedEx costs. Essentially, by using this service, you are paying someone to go in person to the Nigerian Embassy in Washington, DC, to get a visa for your passport, hence the high price. But they were very quick and professional. I recommend them. Christopher Lee Assistant Professor Department of History University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
