United Arab Emirates Immigration authorities have imposed a visa ban on Nigerians and are now rejecting visa applications.
This was stated in a notice sent to the UAE’s business associates in Nigeria on Friday, October 21, which also included travel agencies.
The United Arab Emirates’ immigration authorities stated that all applications are halted until problems between the UAE government and the Nigerian government are resolved, though no explanation for the visa ban was provided.
A source at the travel agency Wakanow reportedly confirmed the situation. The source said;
A customer service agent for Air Peace, however, claimed that the company continues to fly passengers to Dubai who already possess a valid visa. The representative continued by saying that any changes to flights for Nigerians would be properly announced.
