Hiya, people! I'm new on this site. I really find helpful all that's been stated above, save the hidden posts . I joined cuz I really need to know what I'm doing here. I plan to travel to Benin as it is the closest place to Nigeria where paypal accounts are allowed to be open. I would rather manage my money myself, thank you. I might be needing to open a bank account over there and I couldn't speak French if it would save my life. So, pls, save a sister and let me know what to do and where to go. Thanks.

Welcome to Nairaland. For the hidden posts, I wasn't the one that did it. It's the moderator "just wise". For the PayPal account opening, you need to travel down to Benin to make the enquiry at the bank .

Thanks.

To drive pass the border, you will need Lesse Passei. For the hotels, there are so many decent hotels, but I use hotel camilio palace sekandji.
