Unbelievably easy Nigerian visa

We just got our Nigerian visas in Bamako, Mali.
Handed the applications in yesterday morning and got the visa 14:00 today.
No hassle, no questions, no explanations. Single entry and valid for 90days from issue.
I really think it is worth a try here in Bamako. My application was rejected 3 times in the UK, so super excited about this.

They wanted :
Passport
2 photos
Copy of passport main page
copy of Mali visa
copy of Mali entry stamp
copy of vehicle registration doc (V5C or Carte Grisse)
copy of CPD front page, both sides
Copy of CDP Mali entry stamp.
Cost was CFA34000 for me (Saffa) and CFA46000 for Belgian dude.

We stayed at the sleeping camel (Great for overlanders) GPS N12 37.530, W007 59.276, and it is about 15-20 minute walk from here past Azar supermarket. There is a photocopy kiosk along the way, was CFA600 for all the photocopies.

Hope this helps those one the way.

Just got the Nigerian visa in Bamako also, despite Nigeria closing some of it's borders.
46000 Cfa as a Belgian, about 60000 for UK and 75000 Cfa for Americans. Next day service.

whew... had to reread that twice... mistakenly thought you were referring to getting a Visa credit card from Nigerians.
