  1. Hi. Just read this article and wondering how valid it is for one to get visa on arrival at port of entry just like that for example Nigeria. Have you travelled there yourself and experienced this or are you just merely marketing. It would be embarassing for one to travel and land there only to be harassed by the airport personnel. Two, isn’t Nigeria notorious for receiving bribes as well?

    1. It is an absolute fact. A Kenya citizen does not need visa to come to Nigeria. All you need is visa on arrival.
      On a personal experience, i worked there before and things are working fine.
      It’s unfair and narrow your statement on bribery, please do not generalised. The system is not as bad as you painted it.

      1. So kindly if I may be so bold to ask? Can I just show up at the Nigeria airport with only a passport, no invitation letter or any other paperwork and still obtain a visa on arrival? Isn’t that too simple? I need clarification on this ‘visa on arrival’.
