Introduction of Visa Extension Fees

There are certain areas on the publication which the Ministry needs to clarify. The notice does not clearly identify the locations for processing extension requests for expatriates requiring extension. It also does not specify where the data capturing exercise would take place for expatriates already present in the country.

There are certain areas on the publication which the Ministry needs to clarify. The notice does not clearly identify the locations for processing extension requests for expatriates requiring extension. It also does not specify where the data capturing exercise would take place for expatriates already present in the country.

In addition, there is no clarity with respect to the ‘one year’ period for calculating the aggregate number of days for which an expatriate has stayed in Nigeria: Is the one year period ‘a calendar year’ or ‘any twelve months period’?

Hopefully, the Ministry would provide clarification with respect to these grey areas as soon as possible in order to ensure the successful implementation of the scheme.
