Nigeria STR Visa
Nigerian STR Visa: Subject to Regulation
The embassy does not accept application submissions on Fridays. Please consider this when selecting your visa processing time.
The STR (Subject to Regularization) visa is issued according to the dates as specified on your contract and typically allows for a single entry.
The STR is required by foreigners seeking to take up employment in Nigeria. Section 8, sub–section 1, of the Immigration Act provides that „no person, not being a citizen of Nigeria, may take up employment in Nigeria other than employment with the federal or state government without the consent of the Comptroller–General of Immigration". Section 33 of the Act further provides that an application must be made to the Controller–General by the prospective employer, in writing, confirming that he/she has a vacancy on the expatriate quota and at the same time stating the position in which the prospective employee is to be employed and confirming acceptance of immigration responsibility.
The employer company applies to the Nigerian embassy or consular office in the country where the prospective employee/applicant resides, requesting that the individual (and accompanying spouse/children, if applicable) be granted STR Visa (subject to regularisation for residence work permit) upon arrival in Nigeria. The employer company undertakes to assume immigration and other responsibilities for the employee (and accompanying spouse/children, if applicable) in Nigeria
The STR Visa is issued at a Nigeria mission without reference to the Comptroller-General of Immigration provided that the applicant presents the specified documents. STR visa is normally given for 90 days without reference, during which an application must be made to the Comptroller-General of Immigration, to regularise the stay of the prospective employee, when such application is approved and a Residence Work Permit granted.
