thank you, very informative. but unfortunately didn't include cost, i'm not totally sure my information on cost is totally up to date, but should be in the ballpark. i'll update that when further evidence is found.

I also appreciate that your information stated the unreliability of requests by mail to the Nigerian inspector General, and that the applicant should have a local family member go there in person for them and then mail them.

If you search VJ in the Nigerian forum there has been much talk on prices for PCC. It's very fluid (you know 9ja).And the negotiation skills play a big part and also not letting them know its for a immigration visa helps keep price down. I know some have said its for job interview. Depends.

At least the medical is pretty solid. Since you said your fiance' is 42 he will have to have the extra test for over 40 (EKG he has to have) that was N10,000 a year ago when they started doing that so prepare for that extra also if you haven't done medical already. The rest is about N12,000 for medical and since you aren't getting shots maybe thats it and the N10,000

Hope that helps.

oh #$%! thank you, I'm still getting used to the whole haggling part, waaay too used to nice set american prices. even if we dont agree with them, or think their highway robbery. but theres enough negotiating with private people here, it shouldn't be hard to learn lol... this bribbery and negotiating thing takes getting used to, its hard not to get my Taurus hackles up and refuse to pay those idiot bribes. but i don't know why, after all i do have my own Nija police officer on my payroll :-) my husband votes me most likely to get shot for fighting with a robber :-)

thank you so much for the advice not to let them know about the visa thing, I remember seeing someplace that their not accepting the requests from the us embassy anymore, don't know why. so I will advise him to say its for a job interview :-) unfortunately i think my hubby stinks at negotiating, here i am the kettle calling the pot black lol

Stinks that they may insist on an EKG, that's all we need is more expense :-(

Well my fiance went to the police headquarters, and ask for the certificate, I told him to tell them it was for a job in Lagos, but I think he undermined his own efforts by telling them he was going for a job in the Benin Republic. they insisted the price was N25,000! ($157 USD) he told them it was supposed to be N1,500, and they screamed at him, he begged and pleaded his way down to N15,000 ($94 USD!) Well, it's over now, no sense in crying over money gone.

In the future I suggest people tell them its for a job IN LAGOS. and don't mention a visa at all!!!
