Travelling with THE green passport

The green passport commonly owned by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) member states have been around for some time and for frequent travellers, they sometimes come with setbacks and a certain type of treatment best not mentioned today.

It is no secret that I’m Nigerian by nationality, and my wandering feet means I have had my fair share of disappointments whenever I see the costs of applying for a visa talk less of the actual tickets. I remember one time I spent up to 3 hours along with my travel group waiting for clearance in Egypt after almost 6 hours of travelling while those with red and blue passports were cleared in 30/40 minutes tops.

Once upon a time I thought that I could only visit our neighbour countries visa free as they are also in the ECOWAS clique but that quickly changed when when I stated looking up potential baecation destinations *hint hint, wink wink!

So, today’s post is looking at 40 something countries Nigerians can visit without the hassle of visa applications in 2019.

Check out visa free countries that Nigerian passport holders can visit:

Visa free means one can travel to these places without having to apply for a visa prior to the trip but these places, inasmuch as they are visa free, may have various restrictions and processes unique to the various countries to be noted before arrival.

Also, some have time limitations in which you are allowed to stay visa free but once that elapses, you have to process a visa and some require a fee to be payed in order to receive the visa on arrival.

Therefore, it is highly advisable to do your research before you travel to avoid surprises and being cheated due to ignorance.
