The Consulate-General came into being in 1994 when Nigeria established full diplomatic relations with South Africa, after the dismantling of the apartheid regime. The Consulate was established to render consular/immigration services to Nigerians in South Africa and to those in Swaziland and Lesotho as well as coordinate/promote trade and investment between Nigeria and South Africa. The Consulate also issues all types of visas to foreigners travelling to Nigeria except diplomatic and official visas which are handled by Nigeria High Commission in Pretoria.
