How to Travel to Dubai from Nigeria on a low budget

My trip to Dubai was the highlight of my 2019. Dubai is a city in the United Arab Emirates, a really beautiful country indeed abounding in opportunities for Nigerians.  The city is undoubtedly a hyper-modern kind of city. The truth is it is one of the most visited cities in the world. If you are a Nigerian interested in traveling to Dubai, you have come to the right source of information.

I went to Dubai on the 10th of December 2019 and touched down Nigeria on the 26th of December 2019. All I did was send a copy of my Bio page from my international passport to my agent.

I applied via a travel agent. He has been tested and trusted!!! All you need is your passport and you are good to go.
