Nigeria import is strict in some cases, but when it comes to a personal vehicle, it is rather simple. While there is a lot of documentation that will be needed, most of it the owner will already have on hand. Nigeria isn’t known for its superb public transportation, so having a vehicle during an extended trip or even permanent residency will be advantageous.

About Nigeria and Its Roadways

As part of West Africa, Nigeria is bordered by the Gulf of Guinea in the Atlantic Ocean. The country is compromised of 36 states. Its regions vary greatly as it consists of forests, Plateaus, highlands, and tropical rainforests.

The country consists of many roadways, having the second largest road network in all of  West Africa. Unfortunately, the roads are unkempt and there have been many reported accidents and deaths due to the roads’ poorly maintained conditions. As of recently, Nigeria has been struggling to conduct maintenance on its roadways to make them safer and easy for travel.

Public transportation is available but consists mostly of water transportation and railway. Having a personal automobile for travel will help anyone who may need to travel throughout the country often.
