This week, President Muhammadu Buhari has announced a visa on arrival to all Africans travelling to Nigeria. The visa on arrival policy will take effect from January 2020.
Currently, visitors from many African countries need to apply for visas in their country of origin, which are issued upon arrival. However, this development will eliminate the process of application from home country, drive more passenger traffic into Nigeria, which will more so enhance economic activities.
