Nigeria, a country known for its wildlife landmarks, has a lot to offer. However, carrying legal documents into Nigeria can be complicated.
Nigeria is not a member of the Hague Apostille Convention of 1961, and documents cannot be apostilled for Nigeria. Any official documents tagged for Nigeria will need a certificate from the secretary of state.
Tourism and business are the primary reason that one travels to Nigeria. At that point, individuals need to get their legal documents issued in the United States or any other country valid to be used in Nigeria.
However, legalizing documents for Nigeria will require additional steps before the papers can be presented to the respective Nigerian embassy or the Consulate office.
Most countries who are not members of the Hague Apostille Convention will request certified State documents to be approved by the U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C., before being presented to the Embassy or Consulate for legalization.
While submitting the documents to the Embassy or Consulate, you could be asked for further verifications and additional copies to prove your case.
We also offer a service for translations if you need the legal documents translated by a certified professional.
Note: We can assist you with documents issued inside the United States only. However, if your document origin is Nigeria, you must contact the proper authorities to help you in Nigeria.
