Do I need a transit visa for Morocco and USA before heading to Barbados from Nigeria, because the airline I want to book, will pass through Morocco and USA.

Yes I hold a Nigerian passport, and it's visa free to Barbados, just want to know if I need transit visa for the stop over at Morocco and USA.

You’ll need a transit visa for the US. You shouldn’t need one for Morocco if you are just changing planes and not leaving the airport.

You do not need a visa to visit (tourist reason) for up to 6 months. after 6 months you would be required to have visa to stay longer.

https://travel.state.gov/content/tra...s/transit.html This is the information required to transit the US. The airline you are flying on should be able to advise this information but generally a transit visa is only issue for immediate onward flights to your destination. There aren't that many flights into Barbados.. and Immediate onward destination may not apply.

But is there any other route I can take other than USA, UK and Canada, because only these three requires a transit visa to Barbados from Nigeria.

Almost any route you take will go via Europe or the US/Canada. The only route I could work out which didn’t do this and doesn’t require transit visas would be Lagos>Istanbul>Panama City>Bridgetown but your flights would have to match up in order to allow you to travel visa-free.

Turkish Airlines will get you from Lagos to Panama City. Copa flies direct from Panama City to Bridgetown but I’m having difficulties getting the flights to match up. You’ll probably have to spend the night in both Istanbul and Panama City airports.

Try websites like expedia, which allow you to specify your route, and then type in the airports suggested by BiP.
No disrespect intended but if you can't work out how to book an airline route then you may struggle with the complexities of such things as work permits for Barbados (having read your other thread). Most of us are all willing to help but you need to do the actual work on bookings etc yourself
