An embassy is a diplomatic mission of one country to another one. It is usually located in the capital of the state but you can also see more than one office in a country.
Here we talk about the Estonia embassy in Nigeria.
Estonia Embassy in Nigeria
This country has diplomatic missions in many states, but Nigeria, unfortunately, is not one of them. As it is a member of the European Union and part of the Schengen area, it can be represented by another Member State.
On the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of this EU Member, it is stated that the country “is represented in issuing Schengen visas” in Nigeria by Belgium.
Where to Go for Visa Application?
There are two centers of Belgium delegation where you can apply for a visa to the Schengen area: in Lagos and in Abuja.
Address: VFS Global, Ground Floor Manor House, Plot 110, Admiral Ayinla Way, Lekki Phase I, Lagos.
It is an office for the Estonia embassy in Lagos, where you can submit your application (Monday – Friday, 08:00-14:00), enquire about anything you want to ask (Monday – Friday, 08:00-14:00), and collect your passport (Monday – Friday, 10:00-16:00).
Address: Sterling Bank Plaza, Plot 1083 Mohammadu Buhari Way, Central Business District, Abuja.
It has the same timing as the office in Lagos for submitting your application (Monday – Friday, 08:00-14:00) and inquiry (Monday – Friday, 08:00-14:00), but the time frame for passport collection is a little different (Monday – Friday, 08:00-15:00).
Is There any Estonia Embassy in Africa?
Africa is a large continent, so it would be strange if there were no diplomatic missions of Estonia. However, it is only one here, and it is located in Cairo, Egypt.
This fact does not mean that the country does not welcome tourists from Africa, and from this African country in particular.
This can be explained very simply: the Schengen area allows you to have one visa to enter many countries, so if there are no international relations between the countries that need to be settled, you can get a visa at any other Member State delegation.
So, this is the main general information you need to know about this diplomatic mission in Nigeria. Learn more about the conditions for obtaining a visa for various purposes before applying.
