Investors and Tourists to now get Visa to Nigeria within 48 hours — FG

A tripartite committee has been constituted by the federal government to review the visa approval process for foreign investors and tourists.

Minister of information and national orientation, Mohammed Idris, said this was discussed at the just concluded Federal Executive Council meeting. 

Idris said President Bola Tinubu approved the setting up of the committee to accelerate visa processes and acquisition for foreigners interested in investing in Nigeria. He added that reducing the approval time for visas to 48 hours, will attract more investors and tourists into the country.

The Minister said; 

“Our visa processes are becoming cumbersome…The ease of doing business is also tied to our visa processes. Going forward, those investors, and tourists will find it easy to acquire a visa within the next 48 hours.

“The new visa processing time will now be ready within 48 hours and will eliminate human contacts. The issue is to ensure that the government fast-track the ease of doing business.”

“Our visa processes are becoming cumbersome…The ease of doing business is also tied to our visa processes,” the minister said.
