Dubai robbery: UAE restricts visa to Nigerians

By Michael Paul

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has slammed a visa restriction on Nigerian visitors, by suspending the issuance of three months visa, Ivotesng.com has learnt.
A travels and tours firm, Afric Holidays, announced this in a terse statement through its Instagram page Wednesday.
“Nigerian Passport holders are no longer eligible to three months UAE Tourist Visa.
“Nigerian Passport holders are now restricted to one month, 96 hours and 48 hours UAE Tourist Visas till further notice,” the firm said.
The new policy was corroborated by some Nigerians who tried to get Dubai visa online.
The shift in visa policy came two days after five Nigerians were arrested for robbing a Bureau de Change operator of Dh2.3 million (N225.4 million) in Sharjai, Dubai.
The suspects were identified as Chimuanya Emmanuel Ozoh, Benjamin Nwachukwu Ajah, Kingsley Ikenna Ngoka, Tochukwu Leonard Alisi and Chile Micah Ndunagu.
