What is a Visa?

An endorsement on a passport indicating that the holder is allowed to enter, leave, or stay for a specified period of time in a country. International students and scholars at Covenant should use the appropriate visa related to their current activities at Covenant (a student visa or a research scholar visa). The use of a “visitor” or “tourist” visa may have serious consequences when used inappropriately. Once the proper visa expires it will be necessary to apply for a new visa stamp at a Nigeria embassy or consulate when traveling outside the country.
