UAE Denies Lifting Visa Ban on Nigerians

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has denied lifting the visa ban on Nigerians, which was imposed in October 2022 over issues involving flight allocations and travel restrictions.

The ban affected Nigerians holding regular passports, but not diplomatic passports.

Previous media reports had claimed that the ban was lifted after a meeting between President Tinubu and the UAE President.

Tinubu had met with UAE leader Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan in Abu Dhabi to “finalize a historic agreement,” according to the federal government’s statement.

However, a senior official from the Gulf state (name withheld) said:

There are no changes on the Nigeria/UAE travel status so far.”

Recalled that former President Mohammadu Buhari had appealed to the UAE President to lift the ban in February, but the UAE authorities rejected the request.
