Have you been daydreaming about the beautiful architecture or the stunning, vast gardens of Singapore? Now, your dreams can come true with this ultimate guide on applying for a Singapore visa in Nigeria! Visa applications tend to be a stressful business. Let us help you simplify the Singapore visa application process. All you need to really worry about then is booking your flight!
Nigerian passport holders need a tourist visa to enter Singapore. Fortunately, the process is relatively simple. You will need to apply at the Honorary Consulate-General of the Republic of Singapore in Lagos or you can have a contact in Singapore submit your application (more on that below). Always apply for your tourist visa at least 30 days before your departure date to allow for enough processing time (and save yourself from any unnecessary stress!).
Please note this process is applicable to Nigerian passport holders.
