Marrying in Nigeria

Hi everyone,

I met a girl on line, we figured out that we are quite compatible and have decided to marry. She is working in Abuja and her father is in Kano. His father has asked me to come to Nigeria to marry her daughter. So I am planning to come there in near future.

I plan to stay for a while in Nigeria after marriage and want to get job there. I am currently working in mobile apps and games industry as a project manager & ASO expert. Any advice how should I go about this. What type of Visa should i apply or can get easily?

Your advice is much appreciated.

Dr. Rizz Jonah.

Well I have been to NIGERIA for the past two years as an expatriate.i got a business visa first as I was only on strategic planning of businesses but later I applied for a working permit which I got easy but expensive. So you better get an agent to sort you out but WATCH OUT THERE ARE LOTS OF CROOKS AS WELL. So getting married I have no advice its your call . I just wish you all the best!

Thanks Kenny for your reply and good wishes. How to figure out the crooks if you have any tips.


Well one cannot tell but I have learnt that Nigerians are focused and hard working people. But the level of deceiving and betrayal are very high as well.. So my best advice would be to take your time to know everything and everybody around there, get to some rough patches and see what you gonna get unlike rushing in and regret later. ONLY FOOLS RUSH IN ! Life in Nigeria is tough eutrophism is high... People do anything to survive even promising you a beautiful girl just to suck your hard earned cash and all sorts of nasty like I mentioned ITS UP TO YOU!


Getting married in Nigerian Women , Himmmmmm  ?????   All the best  I don't want to express my feeling, I live here 5 years I could understand very little about the Nigerian girls
you have to be V.V.V.V.V. Care full prior to execute your wish
As Kenny said  level of deceiving and betrayal are very high  I found in many case of expat who married to a Nigerian Girl 
may be you may get  very good life partner over here , but one thing Nigerian girls are very pretty and that is danger too

any have all the best Dr

Thanks a lot KITTAPPA for your advice. I would be careful.
