A top official of Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) said since the government approved visa on arrival process, there has been a huge application for it

He said the process was very easy for prospective visa applications to the country, adding that the cumbersome arrangement of going through the country’s high commissions or embassies before now made investors to find it extremely difficult to do business in Nigeria.

The official who spoke to Woleshadarenews on condition of anonymity said visa issuance had gone up by 25 per cent in the past six months to about 14, 000 from Lagos airport alone.
