When moving to the Giant of Africa, perhaps the best plan of action is to seek the guidance of a relocation company. Relocation businesses offer companies and individuals a full suite of services including pre-departure orientation, neighbourhood orientation, accommodation and home-finding services, lease negotiation and utility hook-ups. For expat families moving to Nigeria, relocation companies can help with education and school selections, visits and registration.
Relocating to this country, with over 500 languages and dialects, will no doubt present many challenges, and although a relocation firm may seem like an unnecessary cost, it's often worth the assistance, particularly for resolving immigration and visa matters.
Here's a selection of relocation companies that can make your move to Nigeria a breeze.
