Yes… A letter of invitation to Nigeria by a host (individual or company) is one of the mandatory Nigerian visa application requirements.
If you need a visa to enter Nigeria, then you very certainly also need a letter of invitation. A letter of invitation to Nigeria from a host is one of the mandatory Nigerian visa processing requirements.
To apply for an entry visa (business or tourist) to Nigeria, you will need to present an invitation letter from your host in Nigeria, be it an individual, company or organization.
For an individual invitation letter, you will need the passport data page of the host as well. If it is a company or organisation inviting you, they must attach an incorporation certificate (CAC) to the letter of invitation.
If you have a willing host in Nigeria with the required documents (valid Nigerian passport copy and/or CAC certificate), you can obtain an invitation from them.
But what if you don’t have a host in Nigeria with valid government documents?
Well, that’s where we come in very handy. You can obtain an invitation from us with all required documents in just 60 minutes. Our invitation and documents are honored by the Nigeria Immigration Service and all Nigerian Embassies worldwide.
Where do you want to visit in Nigeria? You need an invitation letter for Nigeria visa from a Nigerian with a valid passport (with at least six months validity) or a company with valid registered (CAC) documents.
We want to help you easily and affordably get a Nigerian letter of invitation. No hassles. No waiting for too long. Getting a qualified Nigerian visa invitation letter is the major determining factor to the success of your visa application.
We’ve served tens of thousands of clients and visitors across different continents and nationalities…and you are next!
To quickly and easily get an invitation letter to process a Nigerian visa, you will need to send us your proposed visit details (arrival in Nigeria and departure from Nigeria) and passport info: names on passport, passport number, nationality, country applying from, and make a $50 payment.
After payment, you should receive the letter of invitation (together with the host passport and CAC certificate) from us within 60 minutes via email. We will also forward a copy of the invitation to the embassy/immigration.
What are the Requirements for Getting a Nigerian Visa Invitation Letter?
Essentially, the information required to process a Nigerian visa invitation letter for you are your proposed dates of visit (arrival in Nigeria and departure from Nigeria) and a copy of your passport data page (or passport details).
The letter will be addressed and sent to the Nigerian embassy in the country where you intend to apply for a visa (or to the Comptroller General of Immigration in case of visa on arrival), alongside other visa processing requirements, with a copy also sent to you via email.
You will make a printout of these documents and present at the Embassy/High Commission/Consulate for visa processing.

A letter of invitation to Nigeria is a document which indicates that you are invited to Nigeria by a Nigerian or Nigerian company registered or incorporated by the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) in Nigeria. It is a mandatory Nigerian visa application requirement. In order for you to apply for a Nigerian Visa, in addition to other requirements, you will need to present an Invitation Letter with your visa application. In the letter of invitation, the host must accept all immigration responsibility for the visitor and attach a valid Nigerian Passport and or company incorporation document (CAC certificate). The host is also expected to state clearly in the letter of invitation accommodation arrangement (or hotel reservation) made for the visitor.
Yes. If you require a visa to enter Nigeria, you very likely also need an invitation letter to Nigeria because a letter of invitation is one of the main Nigerian visa application requirements. If you want to successfully apply for a visa to Nigeria, then you will need a letter of invitation.
The passport copy of the host (signatory to the letter) and/or CAC certificate (company incorporation certificate).
When applying for a Nigerian visa, you will need to submit your original invitation letter, your passport copy, 2 passport photos (white background), proof of accommodation in Nigeria or hotel reservation confirmation and evidence of sufficient funds for the trip (bank statement). You will also need to fill the visa application form online and pay the visa fee applicable to your country.
We require the following to process an invitation for you:
1. Passport information (passport must not expire in the next six months after arrival in Nigeria)
2. Valid email address or WhatsApp Number
3. Arrival and departure date
4. Specify which cities you will visit during your stay in Nigeria
5. Number of entries required for your trip
No, you cannot. The Visa Invitation Letter allows you to apply for the actual Nigerian visa.
The Visa Invitation Letter is a document that must be submitted along with your visa application. It is not an actual visa, but rather a document that the Nigerian government requires when applying for an entry visa to Nigeria.
You can securely make payment online here.
Alternative payment options available at your request include: WorldRemit, TransferWise, Western Union, MoneyGram, Mukuru, etc.
It takes within 60 minutes or less after confirmation of payment to get an invitation letter from us.
No, not necessarily. A hotel booking is not required before getting an invitation. However, the Nigerian Consulate/High Commission may ask you to provide evidence of accommodation in Nigeria (a copy of hotel reservation confirmation) when you present for visa application. As a result, we also send a demo reservation confirmation together with the invitation.
After you receive your invitation letter via email, you can apply for a Nigerian visa at their embassy, high commission or consulate in your country of residence. You need to follow these steps:
1. Print your invitation in color, together with the host passport copy and/or CAC certificate.
2. Submit the letter as well as all the other required documents for your visa application at the embassy. These typically include: copy of international passport with at least six months validity left, a color passport-sized photo (white background), evidence of sufficient funds for the trip (6 months bank statement), evidence of proper accommodation arrangement (reservation confirmation), completed online visa application form, payment receipt and acknowledgement slip.
3. After your visa interview (where necessary) at the Nigerian embassy, they will issue you your visa, when approved.
Note: If you are applying for a visa on arrival, you will be required to upload the letter online during the application process.
You can specify your travel time frame, which may not exceed 90 days. Therefore, if you have already bought your tickets, go ahead and provide exact dates. However, if the purchase is still to be made, provide approximate time frame. Just keep those dates in mind when ordering tickets. Though after payment for invitation processing, we can amend the dates if need be at no additional cost to you.
No, a letter of invitation is merely a document that allows you to apply for the actual visa. It is a Nigerian visa requirement; having it improves your chances of getting a visa to Nigeria. However, whether you are approved for the visa will be at the discretion of the Nigerian government.
At Destinali, we have a perfect visa application success rate with our invitation. In the rare case that you don’t get a visa with our invitation, we will offer to process a Nigerian visa on arrival for you all by ourselves at a $50 discount. If you don’t take this option, we will give you back your money (the exact amount paid for the invitation) within 30 days. To qualify for a refund, however, the embassy must explicitly state that the letter of invitation is the reason for visa rejection.

Nigeria may not be on many people’s bucket list, but that is mostly because there are a lot of common misconceptions about it. There are stories of crime, fraud, terrorism and Nigerians being rude.
While this is true to an extent, it does not reflect the totality of Nigerian culture and it’s people. In fact, it will surprise you to know that majority of Nigerians are very hardworking, honest, friendly, welcoming, hospitable and peace-loving.
Regardless of many misconceptions, there is a lot of surface area to explore. As with any other country, there are plenty of things you need to know before you hop on the plane, but rest assured that following the Nigerian etiquette is not that complicated. As long as you keep in mind that Nigeria is a traditional country, you should get around just fine.
Nigeria is also a religious country, especial in the core North. Thus, you will need to dress decently though we do not recommend visits to North-West region in Nigeria for safety reasons. Other than that, Nigeria’s major cities of Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt, Cross River, Ibadan, Benin, Delta, Imo, Enugu, etc are generally safe.
