The change is the most recent in a string of exchanges between Nigerian and UAE immigration authorities concerning visa requirements and their interactions with Nigerian travelers.

According to reports, the latest development was announced in a notice issued on Friday by Dubai authorities to its trade partners in Nigeria, including travel agencies.

The Dubai authorities announced that all applications were halted until problems between the governments of the UAE and Nigeria were handled, notwithstanding the lack of an explanation for the restriction.

The notice to Nigerian travel agents partly said:

“All Dubai applications submitted are now rejected. It is general for Nigerians and approvals are on hold at the moment. Kindly advise your clients to resubmit C2=A0 applications when the issue is resolved between both governments.’’
