Third floor, Murkhtar El-Yakub Place beside Metro Plaza, on Plot 1129 Zakariya Maimalari Street, Central Business District, Abuja, Nigeria

Please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment time. Please make sure you do not arrive much earlier in advance because you may not be admitted to the premises and will have to stay outside in the queue.

Please note that access to our Visa Application Centres is restricted to visa applicants or those deemed to have a legitimate reason to accompany the applicant. This includes:

  • Escorting a minor, assisting an elderly person or someone with a disability or learning difficulty.
  • Non-applicants will be required to submit contact details, ID and declare their connection to the visa applicant.

    Failing to provide the requested details may result in access being denied to non-applicants.

    Prefer not to travel back to our Visa Application Centre to collect your passport when your application has been considered?

    Avoid unnecessary travel, save time, and avoid the crowds by having your passport returned to you by courier.
