I have filled all forms for travelling to Nigeria, including the high extreme-risk destination travel form. Among recommended behaviours:
- Only use transportation services approved/provided by the local office. Do not use public transportation. Do not rent a car.
- Only stay at a hotel approved by both the local office and iSOS
- Only eat at restaurants and attend entertainment events if approved by the local office and accompanied by local staff
- Do not engage in any leisure travel/sightseeing.
- Never travel alone. Avoid isolated and high-risk areas. Remain off the streets after dark
- (In a vehicle) Always lock the doors and wear your seat belt.
- (In a vehicle) Keep windows rolled up and use air conditioners.
- (In a vehicle) If possible, sit in the back seat. The seat behind the driver is usually considered the safes
- If detained by authorities, identify yourself, be respectful, obey authorities, keep calm and be courteous, request to contact a local manager and the embassy.
- To maximize safety and security, select a room located between the 4 and 6th floor. Whenever possible do not accept a hotel room on the ground floor that has doors and windows that open to the outside. Hotels with interior hallways tend to be generally safer.
