Nigerian government has said that the evacuation from Ukraine is only for documented Nigerians and that any undocumented Nigerian would first have to set their record right with the nation’s embassies in Romania, Poland and Hungary.
A statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Wednesday signed by it’s spokesperson, Francisca Omayuli read:
“The Federal Government of Nigeria wishes to inform that arrangements are being concluded for the evacuation of the first batch of Nigerian nationals willing to return home via Romania, Poland and Hungary.
“Intending evacuees should kindly note that only persons documented with the Nigerian
Embassies will be eligible for evacuation. Consequently, those yet to register for the exercise are advised to do so, as it is a mandatory requirement.
“Those without passports will be issued Emergency Travel Certificates (ETC) to enable them travel back home.”
The statement further added that: “For documentation and further inquiries, please contact the following Embassies:
