FG woos foreign investors with permits
Posted by News Express | 6 September 2016 | 1,655 times
The Federal Government has commissioned 28 additional centres for the production of Combined Expatriate Residence Permit and Aliens Card.
The development is aimed at automating the operations of the Nigeria Immigration Service, for the issuance of residence permits to expatriates residing and working in Nigeria.
The centres were commissioned on Monday in Abuja by the Minister of Interior, Lieutenant General Abdulrahman Dambazau (rtd).
He explained that the new structure would ease the stress of doing business in Nigeria.
The centres are now in all states of the federation except Borno and Yobe states, which were exempted for logistics reason.
Rivers State in Nigeria’s Niger Delta region has two centres.
The establishment comes as part of measures to buoy Nigeria’s depressed economy, following the fall in the price of crude oil and subsequent drop in production capacity.
The addition brings the number of residence permit centres to 37 across Nigeria.
