  1. The list of visa free countries for Nigerian citizens is always changing. Namibia was visa on arrival, how come it’s not visa required?

    • Yes, Jide. It used to be visa on arrival. In fact, last year, Air Namibia promised they could process it for Nigerians in their Lagos office but I don’t know if they still operate in Nigeria.
