The United Arab Emirates Immigration authorities have imposed a visa ban on Nigerians. They added that all submitted applications are rejected and fees non-refundable.

The notice seen by The Nation reads: “All Dubai applications submitted are now rejected. It is general for Nigerians and approvals are on hold at the moment.
“Kindly advise your clients to resubmit C2=A0 applications when the issue is resolved between both governments.”
