Planning a SCOAN visit? We know how incredibly difficult it can be to get an official letter of invitation from the church to visit The Synagogue, Church of All Nations, Lagos – Nigeria. But here we recommend how you can easily get an invitation letter if you want to visit SCOAN.
Why Do You Need a Letter of Invitation
The essence of an invitation letter is for visa application. The Nigeria Embassy or High Commission expects a letter of invitation from your host in Nigeria, accepting immigration responsibilities on behalf of you. This is part of the visa application requirements.
The SCOAN cannot officially invite everyone due to the volume of requests. If you have run out of patience waiting for an invitation letter from the church, you can get one from us and get a visa to enable you make the trip to Lagos, Nigeria.
As a matter of necessity, you can plan your entire visit to Nigeria with Destinali. This means you can make hotel booking through us, get a letter of invitation, airport pick-up/drop-off, and even get your visa on arrival from us if you want.
The good thing with arranging your visit with Destinali is, the insightful tour guide and information we will share with you so as to make your trip to Nigeria a successful one.
How to get an invitation letter for SCOAN visit
- Schedule your dates of visit
- Decide your daily accommodation budget
- Contact Destinali Travel and Hotels and send in a copy of your passport
- Get your invitation letter with reservation confirmation within 60 minutes
As a guide, you will need to plan your dates of visit allowing at least 1-3 weeks for visa processing, unless of course you want to fast track your visit by applying for the visa on arrival.
For the best possible experience at the SCOAN, it is advisable to schedule your visit to cover up to two Sundays. This means you can plan to arrive on a Friday or Saturday, spending 9 to 10 days so you will be able to attend two Sunday services. This is because there are no weekday services at the moment. While one Sunday service is enough for you to get your healing, deliverance and breakthrough, it is recommended that you schedule your visit to cover two Sundays.
Having made up your mind on your dates of visit, choose your accommodation budget.
