The Ministry of Interior has revealed its plan to review the nation’s immigration and visa policy to meet global standards.  

This information was disclosed by the Federal Minister of Interior, Olubumi Tunji-Ojo when he received the Chairman and Management of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM) on a courtesy visit to his office in Abuja.  

Tunji-Ojo noted that with the support of key stakeholders, the ministry would review the immigration and visa policy of the country to align with current realities and ease immigration processes for Nigerians in Nigeria and those in the diaspora.  

The minister explained that the review of the nation’s immigration policy would be based on the principle of reciprocity as found in international law.

He further stated any country that grants Nigerians visas on arrival, Nigeria would treat its citizens the same way. 

Tunji-Ojo also spoke on the delays and long-distance Nigerians in the Diaspora had to travel before being captured for their passports.  

He noted that the ministry intends to increase the number of printing machines in London to four to better serve more people in the United Kingdom.
