Niger is also the signatory of Geneva Convention on Road Traffic. The issuance of International Driving Permit revised rules shall come into effect w.e.f. 15 February 2021.

The process will involve the following steps:

(i) Applicant will visit Mission/Post and fill the Miscellaneous Consular Service form to avail consular service. Embassy of India, Niamey will be charging a fee of US$ 10 + ICWF charges (or equivalent amount in FCFA) towards accepting the application of re-issue of International Driving Permit.
