How to move abroad from Nigeria

With Nigeria’s currency rapidly falling, many Nigerians are considering migrating, but many are unsure where to begin.

In this article, I will summarize how to migrate overseas from Nigeria in the best way possible!
I hope the instructions below may assist you in relocating to any country of your choice.

Determine the cost

We must calculate the cost of whatever action we do in life. Japa inclusive. So, before considering migration, think about how much money you can save and remember that there is no set quantity and that anything can suffice based on Number 2.

Select your travel route

There are numerous migration routes or pathways.

  • Route of study
  • Skilled worker route
  • Job seeker route (Austria, Germany, Portugal, and Sweden). E.t.c.

If you have a limited budget and wish to study, consider the following countries:

  • Germany: Tuition-free
  • Norway: Tuition-free
  • Iceland: Tuition-free
  • Austria: below 1000 Euros
  • Czech Republic: below 1000 Euros
  • Luxembourg: Below 1000 Euros 
  • France: Below 1000 euros.

While, if you are a skilled worker, you might consider:
