Why we launched new visa policy

Why we launched new visa policy”

Note that the new visa policy has 79 visa classifications, with the most popular being the Visa on arrival.

President Buhari has presented Nigeria's 2020 visa policy to the public.

According to President Buhari, the core goal of reviewing the visa policy is to attract to Nigeria, innovation, specialised skills and knowledge from overseas to complement local ones, Channels tv reports.

He said the new policy was aimed at attracting innovation as well as specialised skills and knowledge to complement what is locally available, submitting that the document would propel Nigeria to attain a globally competitive economy, improve the country's business environment and boost tourism. "We are open for business", he said in a statement issued by his spokesman, Femi Adesina, today.

Nigeria has begun working on the security and information sharing requirements for the lifting of a USA travel ban on prospective immigrants from the African nation, Nigerian Foreign Minister Geoffrey Onyeama said on Tuesday.

The new policy favours Africans with valid passports who wish to come into the country for a short visit, for businesses, and for tourism, as the Visa grants them legal stay for up to 90 days.

Aregbesola also gave reasons why the country went for the 79 visa categorisation.

But Onyeama said his government, working with US officials, had identified their shortcomings and were working on them, leaving them surprised when the travel ban hit them anyway.

"On the complaints about the number of foreigners in Nigeria, I want you to consider the number of Nigerians outside also. Secondly, it is to expand our economy".

"Hopefully, once that has been achieved, we look forward to being taken off this visa restriction list", Onyeama added. We want to be detailed in the classifications of people who we have to bring into our country so as to limit the chances of any of them escaping our watch. "We can't deny it because it exists".

On his part, the Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Immigration Service, Muhammad Babandede, stated that the new visa policy and processing were created to curb corruption.

Pompeo also said Nigeria could do more in sharing important national security information, adding that he was "optimistic" that Abuja would move in that direction.

"Nigeria must export its labour in the next decade, we are going to be the most populous nation in the world".

With their addition, almost a quarter of the continent, which is the world's youngest and may soon be its most populous, will be restricted from immigrating to the US - even as the Trump administration says it wants to expand ties to combat China's strong influence and Russia's growing presence in Africa. If you know the number of Nigerians in other ECOWAS countries and the business the control, you will not develop hatred for migrants.

"As long as they live legally and do their jobs correctly, we should consider there are Nigerians elsewhere".
