Hi... I will be traveling to South Africa next month and will be transferring from the US through Lagos onto South Africa. Can anyone tell me if I will need a visa in Lagos? I do not plan on leaving the airport but was told that I still might need a visa. Thanks, Henry
Don't laugh please! Met a girl online three months ago who is in Benin and who is a US citizen working there in a UNICEF charity as an accountant. I am bringing her here to Texas for a relationship, etc. She will fly out of Lagos next week to Dallas. I asked her how much money she needs just for personal expenses not the airfare. She said it is required that she have1,000 for Due Procedures with her in case of emergency. She has a US passport. I don't believe this story and it is not the money because I had planned to send her some anyhow but I do not want to be scammed. Is this possibly true? Thanks and again, do not laugh!

Hi, I'm going to Abuja via Lagos in a couple of weeks. I'll be arriving on an international flight into Lagos (LOS) and then connecting on a connecting flight from LOS to Abuja. I have a few questions which I would appreciate your help with: 1. I'm considering Arik Air for the domestic flight. Is it considered a reliable airline? as in on time departures? 2. I want to buy the domestic flight ticket online. How much time should I leave between arriving into LOS and departing from the domestic terminal in LOS? Is one hour sufficient as I only have carry on luggage. 3. Is the domestic terminal attached to the international terminal or do I need to take a taxi? Which taxi is the official one? Thanks
My mother has met a man from Lagos Nigeria and in July she will be traveling there to marry him, my concern is I have not heard of any good things about Lagos. I am wondering should she be traveling there alone or if she should even be trusting the person she is going there to marry and see. I do want her to be happy but I don't want her to also be in any danger while she is over there. She is not in the best of health with her back and she will not be able to fight off any one she comes in bad contact with.I also don't know much about this man who has seem to stolen her heart and said of course all the right things she wants to hear.
Hi! I go to Nigeria in November for three weeks and might need to change some Euros, since I don't have enough USD with me (I'm already on the road). I read one should not take anything else than USD into Nigeria, but I am wondering if it is still hard to get Naria for Euros... Anyone had experiences in changing Euros? If yes, where? What about the rate? THanks a lot, stefan

Do I Really Need to Take Anti-Malaria Tablets In Lagos ? I can hardly imagine that in the (such big) city of Lagos there are malaria-mosquitos in such a number and such active like outside the city. Can I survive my 2 Weeks stay in Lagos without concerns about malaria.? I don't like to use medecine, if it is not necessary. I cannot imagine, all Europeans and Americans on working contract in Lagos taking anti-malaria for a duration of months or even years of contract... Best Regards Leo

Help!!! I'm traveling to Shagamu in a few weeks and flying into Lagos. I will be staying for one week. I have never been to Nigeria before so here are my questions: 1. Cash or credit card? 2. What is the exchange ratio for naira to the u.s. dollar? 2. What are the names of some good hotels in Lagos? (I may need to stay 1 or 2 nights in Lagos). 3. Are there any decent hotels near the airport in Lagos?
You mention that people carry large amounts of cash notes with them..You also say that these notes develop an unattractive smell to them. Does this mean that credit cards are not readily accepted? Is cash money the only way to pay for things in Lagos? It is not possible to use a credit card instead of cash? Thank you for any help that you can give me.
