Good choice on the airline. wink Yes,you will need a transit Visa if you want to venture outside the airport during your stopover in Nairobi.Only East African citizens are exempt.

Thanks for your reply. However, I do not want to venture outside the airport. Do I still need a transit visa even if I am staying in the airport till the connecting flight to Dubai is set to move?

Steve_101, Thanks for your suggestion but your advice was not complete as you did not state if I would need a transit visa to pass through Addis-Ababa as a Nigerian national even though I do not intend leaving the airport. Please respond

When is a transit visa required? A transit visa is required for visitors who leave the airport or seaport for the specific purpose of travelling to a third country (i.e. to await a connecting flight, to await boarding a (cruise) ship, or to travel overland to a neighbouring country by bus/car/shuttle). Proof of the connecting flight/cruise or overland transfer is required.
Please note: The maximum validity of a transit visa is three days (72 hours).

Do you need a transit visa if you do not leave the transit zone at the airport while waiting for a connecting flight?
No.

You see,that why Nigerians are disliked when you belittle or look down on other Africans.Respect is EARNED,not just given randomly.
