Africa’s Most Populous Country Launches 48-hour Online Visa Application System

Nigeria has introduced an online system to enable business executives to apply for a visa online and collect it on arrival 48 hours later.

The move to ease visa rules in the West African country follows complaints from foreign executives that obstructive embassy officials made it difficult to enter the country.


Under the new system, travelers must register with the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) and provide details including travel document information, after which a letter of approval may be issued and the visa collected on arrival.

Mohammed Babandede, comptroller general of the NIS, said the facility was in line with the government’s “policy on creation of a conducive environment to attract foreign high net worth investors and professionals into the economy”.
