Who told you it happens everywhere? I guess by "everywhere" you meant everywhere in Nigeria.

bro my first experience was in 2009 when I was traveling to Sweden , meenh ! if u see what so called immigration did to me, because í didn't bribe them, they delayed because my passport was a virgin passport. do you know d reason why I refused to give them? they asked of 100$ , for wetin. so they asked me to pack in one side and attending to other ppl. it was later they took me to one room like that and asked me to seat there , that when I missed my flights then I can talk sense. When I was there like 30mins , menh I now gave them d 100$ though the money was big then but I have no option than to leave . Fortunately I was d last person to enter plane cos they almost shut me outside.
Nigeria is not a country.
I had a stop over in Instanbul , I was afraid that those immigration will also ask for money... in fact they didn't ask for a penny till I got to Sweden . I don't know why our Nigeria country men (immigration) are always like that.

Quite interesting. I guess I too need to document my upcoming trips.
Am in Manchester and London next month.
|Re: 10 Nights in Dubai by Sapphire86(f): 6:48am On May 22, 2018|
Awwwww thank you guys so so much!!
|Re: 10 Nights in Dubai by Sapphire86(f): 6:52am On May 22, 2018|
Now it's time to feel the cost. Dubai or the UAE now charges VAT and other taxes so, room rate may look affordable but taxes are waiting for you once you are about to finish booking. Depends on the length of your stay though
|Re: 10 Nights in Dubai by Sapphire86(f): 6:54am On May 22, 2018|
Let's just say business vacation.... but I felt compelled to document this journey. It was my first time documenting my journey.
|Re: 10 Nights in Dubai by Sapphire86(f): 6:56am On May 22, 2018|
Well, it depends on length of visa, airline you want to flight with, type of hotel you want to stay in, if you are interested in touring.... etc but travel agency na family business so i didn't really feel the stress.

Thank you for the accolade
|Re: 10 Nights in Dubai by Sapphire86(f): 6:58am On May 22, 2018|
Thank you very very much for the compliments..... you should try Dubai, its not so bad na. Do you want to be sexing on the road? Cuz that's the only restriction I see and the fact that alcohol is bloody expensive.
|Re: 10 Nights in Dubai by Sapphire86(f): 6:59am On May 22, 2018|

Thank you guys for the accolade
|Re: 10 Nights in Dubai by Sapphire86(f): 7:03am On May 22, 2018|
I did, I just didn't post it.....
|Re: 10 Nights in Dubai by Sapphire86(f): 7:08am On May 22, 2018|
My research was borne out of the fact that I really would love to live there someday so i had been doing my homework.
You need to hold dollars, pounds or Euro, naira is not tenable there. But I think dey sell dirhams at Nigerian airport but its Better to go with the aforementioned currencies.
You can use your Nigerian debit card but clear with your bank ahead of time to avoid disappointment in case they say you need dollar card
No tourist map or app...

Nice piece OP. It was really captivating. Simple language and excellent description.
How bout the guy who was hitting on you? I guess he didn't follow up
|Re: 10 Nights in Dubai by boyjo: 7:57am On May 22, 2018|
Thank you. This is what Saphire should have said. The question in summary was "how did you get your visa?". Or Saphire86,you don`t want people to showoff too their travel to Dubai?
|Re: 10 Nights in Dubai by Alwaysking: 7:57am On May 22, 2018|
When next you type back it up with pictures
|Re: 10 Nights in Dubai by Nobody: 8:06am On May 22, 2018|
Lucasbalo:it’s not about being perfect. Our leader are not just ready...... not today, not tomorrow. If you said reasons about America, you don’t mean the leaders but the people that are perhaps shooting or selling drugs. It’s a pitiable situation where you see men above 35 beg for money at the airport. The airport attendants are not left out. Do your job and you will be blessed not asking to be blessed when you have not even done it. The departure and arrival of any country says much about them. I had a similar experience in Kenya and truth is the country isn’t doing well as one would expect. Story was different in Rwanda and South Africa, we can see how these countries are. Though I hear the police in SA are corrupt, I did not experience it. Point is Africans bother about what to eat, what car to drive, what house to live in more than adding or contributing value to make a system better. And No it’s not poverty, if it is, what’s happening in Rwanda won’t be happening.

Lucasbalo:Nigerians are great people. They are the smartest Africans I have come by. They are resilient and hardworking. I will write an article about them soon. However, like the saying of a rotten egg making others to rot so is the situation in Nigeria. A number of the rotten ones found their way to power so many years ago and the situation degenerated to what it is now. I really do not have a solution to the problem because the mind of an average youth is bleeped up already.
|Re: 10 Nights in Dubai by toffy333(m): 8:23am On May 22, 2018|

|Re: 10 Nights in Dubai by Ukododondon: 8:24am On May 22, 2018|
OP..you did a good job by enlightening me further about the UAE... pls can you let me know how much in total in Naira this trip cost you.. Ranging from flight to hotel and others variables like shopping... Eg ..for a couple visiting, will 2 million Naira be too much , too little or just enough to catch the sort of fun you caught... thanks in anticipation of a response from you..
|Re: 10 Nights in Dubai by nanizle(m): 8:30am On May 22, 2018|
But I really don't get the idea of being forced by immigration persons to part with money!?
Does it still happen?
Walahi one kobo no go komot for my had. I'd rather lecture them on how inappropriate that behaviour is and also make an official complaint.
