Factual Reportage

The Federal Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo, has announced that the United Arab Emirates (UAE) government will soon reveal the date for lifting the visa ban that has restricted Nigerian travellers.

Keyamo made this disclosure during an interview with Otega Ogra, Senior Special Assistant to President Bola Tinubu, available on the official YouTube page of the State House of Nigeria.

The aviation minister acknowledged that while President Bola Tinubu and UAE President Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan reached a resolution during President Tinubu’s September 2023 working visit to the UAE, where the cessation of the visa ban on Nigerians was announced, additional processes were required.

Keyamo said these processes have now been completed, making the announcement of the lifting of the visa ban by the UAE government imminent.

Speaking further, the Minister noted that he is privy to the date when the travel restriction on Nigerians to the UAE will be officially lifted. Still, he would wait for the official announcement to be made by the UAE government.
