Nigeria: Immigration Clears Air On Biometrics Charges

June 27, 2018



The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) said it has suspended the collection of $90 biometric Visa-On- Arrival policy it introduced about two weeks ago and could resume when it received instruction from the Ministry of Interior.


THISDAY learnt from a source at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos, that the collection for the biometrics which was done through online payment had been ceded to a concessionaire by the Ministry of Interior.

THISDAY also learnt from inside source at the international terminal of the airport that the biometrics, which came on stream on June 12, was only implemented for two days but was later suspended following complaints from some of the travellers who claimed that there was no adequate publicity on the new policy. A report had said last Monday that the command introduced the $90 biometrics visa on arrival and additional $20 as processing fee for foreigners who were entering the country despite the fact that they had already paid for visas from their respective countries.
