edited August 2016 in Africa
Hi. I have some questions If any one can help. I am a US citizen and my boyfriend live in Nigeria we been talking for about a year. He invited me over there I apply for my visa and everything already just waiting to receive it. I have my friend witch is also his friend here in the state that is a Nigerian and he is sending him an invitation letter and I just want to know all the requirements for him that he need to come over I been looking and can't fine anything. I also want to know how long it will take him to get a visa he is paying for everything himself. Any help would be so nice thanks you and God bless

    Your post is hard to understand. If your friend who is living in the US is Nigerian he does not need a visa or an invitation he only needs his Nigerian passport.
    Nigerian visas take around 2 weeks to process.
  • 1.) "... He invited me over there I apply for my visa and everything already just waiting to receive it..."

    So you're going to Nigeria to finally meet him. That's great.

    2.) "... I just want to know all the requirements for him that he need to come over I been looking and can't fine anything. I also want to know how long it will take him to get a visa he is paying for everything himself..."

    Whoops, now it appears that he's coming to the US instead.

    I don't understand.

    Cheers,

  • Yes I going out there to finally meet him... But he also want to come to the USA to meet my family and stuff so I trying to get some info for him to come over like what all do I need to do document and stuff....
  • Like I mean does he need to get any shots to come here stuff like that

    It is very difficult for men from poor countries unless they have very strong ties to their country such as a very good job, business house, land, money in the bank to be granted a visit visa
    They must have sufficient funds for their air ticket and be able to support themselves during their stay in the USA. Its a lot more than having shots.
    He must apply for B1 visit visa http://www.ustraveldocs.com/ng/ng-niv-visaapply.asp

    You seem very naive. do you know that the US along with other governments advises against all; but essential travel to Nigeria

    You are not visiting Hawai or going to California but to one of the most dangerous countries in the world. to see a man you only met on line.
    Good luck you will need it.
  • Ditto Alethia.

    And remember, he's not even a real person yet - let alone a boyfriend - when you haven't even met him face-to-face.

    Be sure to make all your travel arrangements - especially accommodation - completely separate and independently from him until you check out the situation.

  • "Be sure to make all your travel arrangements - especially accommodation - completely separate and independently from him until you check out the situation."

    Terry is totally correct, these meetings with on line people can go very wrong. Always have your own accomodation. I am shocked when I hear of lone women travelling to countries that they know nothing about staying with the man they met on line. That is a very dangerous thing to do.
