Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has announced that all African visitors will from January receive visas on arrival.
Speaking in Egypt during the Aswan Forum for Sustainable Peace and Development in Africa, Buhari said:
“We in Nigeria have already taken the strategic decision to bring down barriers that have hindered the free movement of our people within the continent by introducing the issuance of visa at the point of entry into Nigeria to all persons holding passports of African countries with effect from January, 2020.”
Nigeria is committed to supporting the free movement of Africans within Africa. Yesterday at the Aswan Forum in Egypt I announced that, in January 2020, we will commence issuance of visas at the point of entry into Nigeria, to all persons holding passports of African countries.
