The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has released details of its new visa-on-arrival policy application for Africans and non-Africans.
In a statement posted on its website on Monday, NIS listed the category of persons eligible for visa-on-arrival.
Newspeakonline recalls that President Muhammadu Buhari had last December announced the policy for Africans travelling to Nigeria, saying it will “bring down barriers that have hindered the free movement of our people within the continent.”
“This is to notify the General Public that Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has rolled out a new Visa on Arrival Application Process for all Business Travelers and African Union (AU) countries, except for ECOWAS member countries,”the NIS statement said.
The service added that the visa-on-arrival is available to “Frequently travelled High Net Worth Investors with business interest in Nigeria and Citizens of African countries.”
According to NIS, the documents required for the application process include: an original passport photograph, an introduction or application letter addressed to “The Comptroller General of Immigration, NIS HQ, Abuja, stating their name, nationality, passport number, purpose of visit, proposed date of visit and port of entry, flight itinerary, and address in Nigeria or hotel reservation.”
