President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the President of the United Arab Emirates, Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, in Abu Dhabi, have finalised a historic agreement that has resulted in the immediate cessation of the visa ban placed on Nigerian travellers.

Ajuri Ngelale, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, disclosed this in a statement on Monday.

As part of the agreement between both governments, Etihad Airlines and Emirates Airlines are to immediately resume flight schedules into and out of Nigeria without further delay.

“As negotiated between the two heads of state, this immediate restoration of flight activity through these two airlines and between the two countries does not involve any immediate payment by the Nigerian government.
