United Arab Emirates Immigration authorities have imposed a visa ban on Nigerians and are now rejecting visa applications.
This was conveyed in a notice issued to UAE’s trade partners in Nigeria including travel agencies on Friday.
No reason was given for the visa ban, but UAE Immigration authorities said all applications are on-hold until issues between the UAE government and the Nigerian government are resolved.
It says: “All Dubai applications submitted are now rejected. It is general for Nigerians and approvals are on hold at the moment.
“Kindly advise your clients to resubmit C2=A0 applications when the issue is resolved between both governments.”
