Citizens of the Economic of West African States (ECOWAS) do not require entry permits into Nigeria. However, all visitors not exempted from entry permits are advised to apply and obtain appropriate visas from the nearest Nigerian embassy, High Commission or consulate before entry into Nigeria, as visas cannot be issued at the port of entry. Early application is advisable to avoid delays.
Health authorities recommend vaccination against cholera and yellow fever from all visitors. Anti-malaria vaccination is also recommended.
Export of Antiquities:
No art treasure may be taken out of the country without written approval from the appropriate Nigerian authorities. This approval must come from the Department of Antiquities or National Museum in Lagos or Jos. The law prohibiting the export of all forms of antiquity, including all ritual as well as contemporary art objects is strictly enforced.
