You’re ready for a trip to Niger but don’t know how to get your visa.
You’ve researched the topic and can see there are multiple ways to apply for one: at home, through an agent or by going in person.
But which method should you choose? Here’s what we recommend:
Niger Visa-Free Travel

The easiest way to get a Niger visa is through your nearest Niger embassy or consulate. You can find this information on their website or by calling them.
- Niamey International Airport (NIA)
- Diori Hamani International Airport (DHI)

You need a visa.
If you’re travelling to Nigeria and don’t have a visa, there are some things you can do. For example:
You could try getting one through an embassy or consulate in your country of residence. This might be easier than it sounds—if someone who speaks English is available at your embassy/consulate, they may be able to help you out (this is especially true if there aren’t many Nigerians working for them).
It’s also possible that the U.S. Department of State will issue visas through their website without assistance from local embassies or consulates; check out their website for details about this option!
The Last Word
A Niger visa is not easy to get, but it’s not impossible either.
You can get one if you follow these steps and ensure you have all the documents required by immigration officials.
If you don’t want any problems at the airport or a border crossing, make sure you apply early enough!
