The current visa fee structure has multiple categories and a need was felt to rationalize the same. To simplify and streamline the fee structure, visa fees for Nigerian nationals has, therefore, been revised with effect from April 15, 2015. Under the new fee structure, all categories of visas would be charged at an uniform rate of US Dollar 250.00 (Two Hundred and Fifty only), plus surcharge of Naira 1062.00 (Naira One hundred and sixty two only). This is in keeping with the practice of uniform visa fee being charged by the Nigerian High Commission in India. All the documentary requirements would continue as per existing practice.
Please note that Visa fee from the applicants will be accepted at the Sterling Bank Plc extension counter in the premises of The High Commission of India, Abuja and Lagos ONLY
Please do not finalise your travel arrangements to India before ascertaining the visa requirements. All foreign nationals, including children, require a visa to enter India.
Visa fees are non-refundable and subject to change. The High Commission reserves the right of deciding the duration of visa irrespective of the fees tendered at the time of making application.
Visas can be applied for in person at the High Commission of India in Lagos. Visa applicants from foreign nationals other than Nigerians or from people of Pakistani, Bangladesh and Sri Lankan origin may have to wait for requisite visa clearance from the Indian Missions in their respective countries. Pakistani and Bangladesh nationals have to apply in special visa application forms.
Visitors to restricted/protected areas need special permits and for this purpose an additional form has to be completed. Please contact the High Commission of India, Abuja / Lagos if you wish to ascertain whether any of the places you intend to visit fall in the category of restricted/protected areas.
Specific visas are granted for a variety of purposes. The principal types of visas issued are mentioned below. Please contact the High Commission of India for further details if you are visiting India for purposes other than tourism, such as journalism, conferences, yoga, voluntary work, mountaineering or other expeditions. The visa application form is, however, the same. Separate forms are available for Pakistani and Bangladeshi Nationals.
