I am proud to be Nigerian and have always been! But holding a Nigerian passport as a business person that travels every so often took it’s toll on my business, my pocket and even my health.
From spending my valuable time in embassy queues and visa offices, to missing important business conventions and busines meetings due to the lack of a visa to transit through the country where my scheduled flight would be laying over, to even some prejudices from airport/ airline attendees despite me holding a business class ticket. And the list goes on and on…
I enjoy flying my family out for holidays once or twice a year, the money is not a problem for us but we have struggled with the limitations of visas and have found ourselves repeatedly traveling to the same countries.
There was a time that my family and I booked tickets, hotels and flights to take all the kids to Disneyland, Paris. A lot of money was spent, just to get our French visiting visas denied and only a transit visas issued for no communicated reason. Of course, you can imagine the frustration that we felt and the horror on the kids’ faces when they heard the terrible news especially after they had told all their school friends that they were spending the summer with Mickey mouse and Cinderella.
Nevertheless, these are the situations that occur when you are limited to one passport and only one means to accessing the rest of the world. The world has become a global village, and everything and everyone is connected. So why limit your accessibility to the world to only one passport?
Visa free travel to over 150 countries including the UK and Schengen countries is only one of the numerous benefits of attaining a second citizenship as a Nigerian. Citizenship by investment offered by Antigua and Barbuda is one of the wise options to consider if you would like to attain a valuable second citizenship.
