Visa-Free Countries for Nigerian Passport Holders in 2020

Have you ever wondered how powerful the Nigerian passport is?

Ever thought about how many countries you can travel to with your Nigerian Passport without a prior visa application?

Well, in this post, I’m going to show you over 40 visa-free countries the Nigerian passport can afford you. That is, countries you can travel to without first applying for visa. Some of the countries are completely visa-free (that is, you don’t need visa at all to get into the country) while others will offer you visa on arrival (that is, you can’t get in without a visa, but you can file for one upon arrival to the country).

Shall we?
