Nigerians Can Now Travel to Dubai: UAE Lifts Visa Ban

Nigerians are now able to resume their trips to Dubai as the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has announced the resumption of visa services. The lifting of the visa ban, imposed two years ago, and the rejection of pending visa applications were confirmed in a joint announcement by both governments on March 4, 2024. This development is seen as a milestone, reflecting the successful outcome of extensive talks between the two nations and emphasizing their shared commitment to strengthening ties, enhancing cultural exchanges, and fostering economic and social collaborations.

To streamline the visa application process, the UAE has implemented an enhanced document verification process. The UAE Ambassador to Nigeria, Saleem Saeed Al-Shamsi, emphasized the significance of this updated procedure, stating that it aims to facilitate straightforward and expedited visa applications for Nigerians while enhancing the integrity of the application process.

Starting from March 4, 2024, all Nigerian applicants for UAE visas must obtain a document verification number through the dedicated online Document Verification Hub platform. Once obtained, applicants can proceed with their visa applications through designated travel agents, with the final processing completed at the UAE Embassy in Abuja or Lagos.

This announcement underscores the ongoing efforts to strengthen the ties between the UAE and Nigeria, contributing to the prosperity and well-being of both nations’ people. It is noteworthy that the UAE’s decision to impose the visa ban on Nigerians, along with nationals from other African countries, stemmed from concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic and the behavior of some travelers.
