Mr. Muhammad Babandede, the Comptroller General, Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), has said Foreigners who fail to carry out day-7 COVID-19 test will lose visas
He disclosed this at the Presidential Task Force (PTF) briefing on COVID-19 in Abuja on Tuesday, January 5th, 2021.
“The public health is a big issue in the country and so based on that directives, we have complied by blocking 100 passports from travelling, which means, even if they go to the police and declare those passports missing, they cannot be reissued anywhere in the world and they cannot cross our national borders until the period of six months or communication received from the right authorities stating that they have complied.
“This will also include non-Nigerians; we have the powers to revoke visas, even the comptroller-general has the power to revoke visas. “
He added, “Please comply; immigration has no business with anybody; we are implementing the directives handed down to us.”
