Nigeria’s Federal Executive Council has approved a new visa policy for the country designed to boost tourism, attract foreign investment and create employment opportunities. An aspect of the new policy is the issuance of visa to visitors at the port of entry.Minister of Information Labaran Maku said the new policy evolved out of a memorandum presented by the Minister of Interior, Comrade Abba Moro. Moro who was also at the briefing, said the new visa regime ensure easier provision of visa to foreign investors, strategic visitors and tourists. He said that the policy would allow for a visa term of up to 10 years for strategic investors, while strategic visitors and government officials coming to Nigeria could have access to visas at the point of entry.
“Today we have a visa policy in place now that is targeted at boosting tourism, attracting foreign direct investment, opening up the economy for employment opportunities and above all, a policy that seek to secure our borders. If a business man or a tourist or a trade delegation or for that matter a government delegation even headed by the Presidents or Heads of State of these countries have reasons to visit Nigeria at short notice to do business with Nigeria and if by any coincidence, we don’t have embassies in such countries, such delegation or group can come to Nigeria and obtain their visas at point of entry.
