Again NIS Closes Nigeria’s Border, Waives Visa Fee for Election Observers

Further to the Presidential Election taking place on the 23nd February, 2019, the Honourable Minister of Interior has directed the closure of all Nigeria Land Borders with effect from 12.00 noon of Friday   22nd February to 12.00 noon of Sunday 24th February, 2019.

This is to restrict movements across the borders during the election days.
The public is to take note and ensure compliance.
Meanwhile, sequel to the re-scheduling of the 2019 General elections to 23rd February and 9th March 2019and considering the plight of accredited election observers and monitors who were caught-up by the re-scheduled election, the Honorable Minister of Interior Lt Gen (Rtd) Abdulrahman Bello Dambazau CFR Phd has approved a visa fee waiver. 
All affected individuals and organisations wishing to extend their stay or travel back to their countries and return for the next election are advised to visit Nigeria Immigration Visa Desk at the INEC Headquarters. 
The desk Officers will attend to those requiring extension of their visa issued Gratis (No Fee Charge). This provision became necessary to afford those affected the opportunity to travel out or return without violating the Immigration provisions that relates to entry and exit with valid visa and document. 
All the affected Election Observers and Monitors are to take advantage and note.
