In my previous post, I talked about the visa free countries for Nigerian citizens and others we can visit either with an eVisa or a Visa upon Arrival. In this post, I’ll be highlighting 25+ other countries you can visit with a valid US visa.

I have previously written about getting a US visa. You can read that here if you are trying to obtain one. However, if you already have a valid US visa on your Nigerian Passport, then you should know that that visa takes you to countries other than the United States of America.

This should come as good news to anyone familiar with the ‘struggles’ of travelling with our green passport. I mean, getting the US visa itself is not a walk in the visa application park, especially with Dropbox applications cancelled at the moment and more stringent application processes in place. But it is good to know that the visa takes you to several other countries, just in case you are interested in visiting them.

*Edit October 22, 2020: Thanks to the comment from Adejoké Babington-Ashaye, this post has been edited to exclude Cuba and Turks & Caicos. Nigerians require a visa to visit Cuba. If you have a valid US visa and have travelled to the US, you can apply from there. Also, you would need to apply for a visa to visit Turks & Caicos from your nearest embassy.

*Edit July 2022: Turkish eVisa is no longer available to Nigerian citizens

*Edit July 2022: Moroccan evisa is now available for Nigerians with a valid US visa.
