One question we get frequently asked is how do you write a letter of application (applicant self-introduction) for a Nigerian visa upon arrival?
Among other requirements, a letter of application (self-introduction) by the visitor is one of the prerequisites for getting an approval for a Nigerian Visa on Arrival (VoA).
Well, for most of our clients that we help with processing their visa on arrival (VoA), we do prepare this letter on their behalf so they don’t have to worry about anything.
But for others who may want to process the visa on arrival (VoA) by themselves, how do you write a letter of application (self-introduction) for Nigerian visa on arrival?
