Nigeria Visa on Arrival (VoA) Approval Letter

The Nigerian Visa on Arrival (VoA) approval letter is a signed document by the Comptroller General of Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) and issued to visa on arrival applicants, qualifying them to travel to Nigeria and get a visa at the port of entry.

It is a pre-approved visa letter issued to intending visitors to Nigeria, and also forwarded to the airline (booked by the applicant) and the immigration at the port of entry for clearance to enter the country.

If you want to visit Nigeria and get a visa on arrival, then this document is a must. Otherwise, you will be returned from the airport!

Here is how the Nigeria Visa on Arrival (VoA) Approval Letter looks like:

The Nigeria Visa on Arrival Process

Typically, the process of getting a Nigeria Visa on Arrival (VoA) involves:

  • Applying and getting an approval letter from the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS)
  • Filling out the actual visa on arrival form on the NIS website

  • Printing out the payment receipt and acknowledgement letter
  • Travel with two copies each of the VoA approval, online payment receipt, acknowledgement and recent passport photos.
