  1. You may have seen the message above about Dubai visa restrictions for Nigerians.

    There has been some modification with the visa process and fees but Nigerians have not been restricted from visa issuance. this info is false.

    There are two types of visas that are issued for Nigerians;
    1. Tourist visa – valid for 2 months and allowed 14 days entry into the U.A.E. This type of visa can be extended for 14 more days while in the U.A.E at an additional cost
    2. The service visa which is a 14 days visa with 14 days validity and a maximum stay of 14 days in the U.A.E and cannot be extended.

    Pls note that visas are still being issued for Nigerians and the type of visa issued is at the discretion of the U.A.E immigration.
