Nigeria In One Minute

FG to Fine Overstaying Foreigners $4000



The federal government has introduced strict punitive measure against foreigners who overstay their visa approved days in the country.

Depending on the number of days, foreigners who breach visa deadline may pay from $200 (N72, 000) to $4000 (N1.8million) as sanctions for attempting to beat the system.

Inside Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) sources confirmed to THISDAY that this policy has been implemented by the Ministry of Interiors, which also expects to generate huge revenues for the federal government.
