A new e-visa policy is set to be implemented by the Federal Government of Nigeria.
The Comptroller General (CGI) of Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), Muhammad Babandede, made the announcement at the weekend at the NIS dinner in Abuja.
He said: “The e-visa policy will encourage investors to Nigeria thereby generating Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) for Nigeria and making Nigeria a most preferred destination through transparency in administration and facilitation of facilities by service.
I assure you that it will be transparent and we will remove cash payment and ensure no security is compromised. It is a balance between facilitation, transparency and protection of national security”.
