The Nigeria Immigration Services has introduced a new guideline that will ensure foreigners coming to do business in Nigeria obtain visas within 48 hours.

The policy comes one month after Acting President Yemi Osinbajo signed an executive order which provides guidelines for agencies to ensure the ease of doing business in the country.

The Comptroller-General of Immigration, Mr Muhammad Babandede assured on Monday in Abuja that the initiative would not burden Nigeria’s boaders which had already been described by some citizens as very porous.

The Minister of Interior, Lt. General Abdulraman Dambazzau (rtd) presented the new timeline handbook to Immigration officers at their headquarters in Abuja. (Channels TV)
