The 4-1-1: Passports & Visas

Passports and Visas
You will need a passport and visas for international travel. Ask your travel agent to help you make contact with the Consulate(s) or Embassy(ies) for the country(ies) you are planning to visit. They will give you specific instructions to receive your visa(s). Each country has different requirements. Several months might be required to secure these legal documents, so do not delay beginning. Do not get your "4-1-1" second-hand -- get your information directly from the appropriate embassy in writing. Most embassies now have web sites so you can work with them directly.
For Niger, submit your visa request to the Nigerian Embassy in Washington, DC.  Send them Fedex overnight, along with the fee per person, and include a Fedex return envelope to:
     Ambassade du Niger
     2204 R Street, N.W.
     Washington, D.C. 20008
     Tel: 202.483.4224
     Fax: 202.483.3169

Keep your passports on your person at all times during your trip.
