Lagos, Nigeria-Travel Health Communication & Business

Travel Health: When travelling to Nigeria, an international vaccination certificate against yellow fever is required. A Cholera vaccination certificate is also required if coming from an infected area. As a precaution against cholera, visitors should drink or use only boiled or bottled water and avoid ice in drinks. Anti-malaria prophylaxis and TB inoculation are recommended. At present there is a high risk of polio infection in northern Nigeria and inoculations are advised. Visitors should seek the latest medical advice on inoculations at least three weeks prior to departure.

Private clinics are found even in the smallest towns. In major cities, private hospitals offer good facilities. As in many countries, costs for medical services or hospital care must be shouldered by the traveller. There are government hospitals throughout the country, but apart from emergencies, the hospitals are more geared to serving the local population. Individuals needing specialised treatment for acute illness or severe injury are usually evacuated to Europe or South Africa. Good, comprehensive insurance is strongly advised, and should include evacuation. Pharmacies abound in Nigeria, even in supermarkets and are open during normal trading hours. Some open even on Sundays in supermarkets.

Communications: The country code for Nigeria is +234, and the outgoing international code is 009, followed by the relevant country code (e.g. 00927 for South Africa). City/area codes are in use, e.g. (0)1 for Lagos, (0)9 for Abuja. Full international direct dialing is available. There are good GSM 900 and 1800 mobile phone networks covering Lagos, Abuja and some other major towns. Internet cafes can be found in major cities.

Business: Nigeria is also a wonderful country do business but it worth investigating the company one is dealing with beforehand. It is best to contact a local embassy or consulate for more information or from trusted Nigerians. Business tends to be conducted formally, and punctuality is important. Dress is usually smart, with suits and ties the norm and conservative clothing for women. A lightweight material is best due to the climate. Business cards are exchanged when meeting, accompanied by a handshake. Women tend to be key players in Nigerian business and therefore will be well received. Business hours are usually 8am to 12.30pm and 2pm to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday. Some businesses are open until 12.30pm on Saturdays. Further north in the country, businesses may be closed on Fridays.
