UAE Lifts Visa Ban On Nigerian Travelers

 

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has lifted the visa ban placed on Nigerian travelers.

The visa ban was lifted after Nigerian President, Bola Tinubu and the President of UAE, Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, on Monday in Abu Dhabi, finalized a historic agreement on the issue.

Special Adviser on Media to President Tinubu, Ajuri Ngilari, in a statement said ” Furthermore, by this historic agreement, both Etihad Airlines and Emirates Airlines are to immediately resume flight schedules into and out of Nigeria, without any further delay.

” As negotiated between the two Heads of State, this immediate restoration of flight activity, through these two airlines and between the two countries, does not involve any immediate payment by the Nigerian government.

” In recognition of President Tinubu’s economic development diplomacy drive and proposals today presented by President Tinubu to his counterpart, an agreed framework has been established, which will involve several billions of U.S. dollars worth of new investments into the Nigerian economy across multiple sectors, including defense, agriculture and others, by the investment arms of the Government of the United Arab Emirates”.

Tinubu said he was pleased to have successfully negotiated a joint, new foreign exchange liquidity programme between the two Governments.

The President commended the UAE President for his unalloyed friendship and determined effort to join hands with him to fully normalize and reset to excellence, the standard of relations between the two important countries.
