Nigerians are denied visas by the UAE.
The United Arab Emirates Immigration authorities have declared a visa ban on Nigerians, stating that all applications will be rejected and costs will be non-refundable.
According to reports, the notification was made on Friday in a notice sent to its Nigerian trading partners, including travel companies.
Although no justification was given for the suspension, Dubai officials stated that all applications would be held until concerns between the UAE government and the Nigerian government were handled.
The UAE immigration authorities’ most recent ruling applies to all Nigerians wishing to travel to the UAE.
“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,” the notice to Nigerian travel agents declared.
A source from Wakanow, who confirmed the story said, “It is true, it was issued yesterday. The Dubai immigration did not state when the ban would be lifted but for now, everything is on hold.”
Speaking with an Air Peace customer service worker, it was learned that the airline is still flying to Dubai with passengers who already have a valid visa. The official stated that if any modifications occurred regarding flights for Nigerians, they would be told, and that no issues had been noted at this time.
Remember that Nigeria was also banned by the UAE on April 21, 2021.
