HISTORIC AGREEMENT: UAE LIFTS VISA BAN ON NIGERIAN TRAVELERS, ETIHAD AND EMIRATES RESUME FLIGHTS

Date:

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the President of the United Arab Emirates, Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, finalised a landmark agreement on Monday in Abu Dhabi; resulting in the immediate lifting of the visa ban imposed on Nigerian travelers. This significant development was disclosed by Ajuri Ngelale, the Special Adviser to the President for Media & Publicity.

As a direct outcome of this agreement, both Etihad and Emirates Airlines are set to promptly resume their flight schedules to and from Nigeria without any further delay. Worthy of note, this restoration of flight activity does not entail an immediate financial commitment from the Nigerian government, according to Ngelale.

In recognition of President Tinubu’s commitment to economic development diplomacy, a framework has been established. This framework will lead to substantial investments, totaling billions of U.S. dollars, into various sectors of the Nigerian economy. These sectors include defense, agriculture, and others, facilitated by the investment arms of the UAE Government.

Additionally, a joint foreign exchange liquidity program between the two governments, spearheaded by President Tinubu, is in the works and will be unveiled in detail in the coming weeks. The President commended UAE President Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan for his unwavering friendship and concerted efforts to fully normalise and elevate the standard of relations between the two nations.
