There is an end in sight to the existing visa ban slammed on Nigerians by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) as the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has intervened in the matter.
This is the first time Tinubu would be speaking on the impasse which has prompted suspension of flights to Nigeria by the UAE flag carrier, Emirates.
The UAE authorities had in October 2022 slammed the visa ban on Nigerians, coming shortly after the Emirates also suspended flights.
Nigerian carrier, Air Peace, which was also operating to Dubai similarly suspended its flight as the UAE stopped issuance of visa to prospective travelers.
Daily trust reports that Air Peace at the time said the suspension took effect from Tuesday, November 22, 2022, “till further notice.”
