Nigeria has started issuing biometric visa, the first in Africa, designed to effectively block many people that would not need to enter the country. 

The introduction of biometric visa was announced by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Interior, Mr. Abubakar Magaji, at the 2017 End-of-Year Dinner and Award Night of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) in Abuja on Monday.

He represented the Minister of Interior, Lt.-Gen. Abdulrahman Dambazau (rtd), at the occasion. “You have made us proud because at this moment, Nigeria is the only country in Africa that is issuing biometric visa.

“It started this year, but we have already launched it. I know the biometric visa is going to block many people that we don’t want to come to Nigeria,” he said. 

While urging the agency to do more in the coming year, Magaji assured of the continued support of the ministry, which supervises the NIS.

Reeling out other achievements of the NIS, Chairperson of the event planning committee, Mrs. Edith Onyemenam, said it was one of the first federal agencies to implement the Presidential Executive Orders issued earlier in the year.  Read More
