Dual National Traveling To Nigeria With Passports With Different Names by lagosboy86: 10:02pm On Oct 21, 2021
Hello All, I am a dual national, (Naija and US passport holder). I'm trying to book a flight to visit lagos. The issue right now is that the names on my Naija and US passports don't exactly match. For the sake of simplicity, The names on my Naija passport is written as ABC, with A being my first name, while that on my yankee passport is BAC, with B as my first name. I'm at a loss as to what name to use in booking the flight ticket. I was initially going to book the ticket using the names as it appears on my Naija passport, as this will grant me entry without hassels into Lagos, but I'm worried I might have issues when leaving as the name on the ticket won't match the name on my Yankee passport. I spoke with the airline customer service and I was advised to buy 2 separate tickets, (one with my Naija passport name and the other with Yankee PP name) or book 2 separate one way trips, but the cost of this is more than double the original cost of a round trip ticket.
To the experienced travelers in the house, how can I go about resolving this?

If you officially changed your name, book with BAC and then use the document you used to board your flight to Nigeria. Once you land they won't care
