Visa applicants wane at Nigerian missions over policy

Published

The improvement and easy access of procuring visas on arrival by foreign investors and others have led to drastic reduction in the number of intending visa applicants at Nigeria’s High Commissions and Embassies overseas.

A top Immigration officer, who informed New Telegraph of the development, did not give the percentage of reduction, but maintained that many people, especially businessmen, have taken great advantage to obtain their visas on arrival.
“Many of them now prefer to get their visas on arrival at the airports because of the ease it provides for them.

“The process of obtaining a Nigerian visa has been likened to a camel passing through the eye of a needle. To visit, foreigners need to successfully navigate a maze of paperwork both before and after they get into the country”.
New Telegraph, October 5, 2017
