NIS to Launch User-Friendly e-Visa Channel 

Comptroller General, Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), Kemi Nandap

In accordance with the Nigeria Visa Policy 2020, the Comptroller General of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), Kemi Nandap, has declared intentions to provide an accessible e-Visa application channel for brief visits.

Nandap made this statement in her speech at the 12th Command Course graduation ceremony of the Immigration Command and Staff College in Sokoto.

Assistant Comptroller General (ACG) George Didel represented the CG, according to a statement released by Service Public Relations Officer (SPRO) Mr. Kenneth Udo on Tuesday in Abuja.

The CG stated that the new route was intended to encourage foreign direct investments (FDIs) and increase tourism in addition to streamlining the visa application procedure.

Nandap advocated for increased attendance at Security Council meetings and stressed the need to revitalise NIS’s divisional offices.

She stated that this would be done at the local and state government levels in addition to other ad hoc tasks carried out with the highest professionalism and cooperation amongst agencies.

Nandap directed formation leaders to put in great effort into making sure that the automation of the passport application processes goes smoothly.

The goal was to minimise human interaction, limit shrewd behaviour, and increase productivity.

Until the whole transformation is accomplished, she said, the enhanced e-passport deployment would continue both locally and at the overseas missions.

All NIS formations were instructed by the CG to actively take part in the national awareness campaign against irregular migration, with a focus on Smuggling of Migrants (SOM).
