Nigerian nationals or non-EU citizens require a visa to enter Germany.
The type of visa depends on the duration of the planned stay. Do you only want to come to Germany for a short time, e.g. as a tourist? Or are you planning a longer stay, e.g. for studies? On this page you will find all the relevant information.
The former fee for verification of documents of 150.0000 Naira will be increased from 15.03.2023 due to inflation, rising aviation costs and security concerns in Nigeria.
For verifications in locations within the following northern states, the fee will now be 250,000 Naira: FCT, Niger, Kwara, Kogi, Nassarawa, Benue, Taraba, Plateau, Adamawa, Gombe, Bauchi, Kaduna, Zamfara, Kebbi, Sokoto, Katsina, Kano, Jigawa, Yobe, Borno. This means when a person or institution located in one of these states has to be verified, the fee applies to this case.
For verifications in all other locations, the new fee will now be 180,000 Naira.
The implementation of the new fees of N180,000 and N250,000 Naira respectively will take effect from 15.03.2023. All appointments on or after 15.03.2023 are subject to the new fees.
We are also aware of the cash scarcity in Nigeria at this time. We are already working on a solution to offer non-cash payments but are not able to provide this option for now.
If you are unable to acquire your verification fees in cash by the time of your appointment, you can still submit your application and will be given more time to submit the fee at a later date. This only applies to the verification fee – not the visa fee. Visa fees have to be paid in cash at your appointment.
We accept new and old Naira notes only in 500 and 1.000 Naira bills. No other currencies.
We kindly ask for your understanding in this turbulent times.
