If you want to study in Nigeria for more than 90 days (e.g., undergraduate, postgraduate, doctorate, etc.) Or, to work permanently at an educational institution based here, you should apply for a long-term visa to Nigeria if you have official invitations or acceptance letters from these educational and business institutions.
