The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has suspended the issuance of three months visas to Nigerian passport holders.

A travels and tours firm, Afric Holidays, announced this in a terse statement through its Instagram page Wednesday.

The statement read, “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 Suspects

This is coming 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. They stormed the place injuring two employees.

The Senior Special Assistant to the Nigeria’s President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, had condemned the act of five Nigerians.

She described the action of the Nigerians in a foreign land as despicable and shameful as it was not in accordance with good character of Nigerians.

Dabiri-Erewa also advised embassies to screen applicants for visa and ensure that they were of good character.
