Need for the Document[edit]

Free Entry visa is granted at a immigration office and Visa is not required to countries that have no immigration control.This is obtainable at most international ports of entry and at most international land border crossings. This is distinct from not requiring a visa at all,as the visitor must still obtain the visa before they can even try to pass through immigration at the port of entry in Nigeria.
