Nigeria to roll out biometric visa requirements

25 October 2017

As from October 25, South Africans are required to provide their biometrics (fingerprints and facial photograph) as part of their visa application to Nigeria. Biometric enrolment requires an applicant to visit the Nigerian Consulate in Johannesburg in person.

The consulate also confirmed that visa stickers are available again. However, this does not mean that the issuing of Nigerian visas will resume immediately.
