The new Comptroller General of the Nigeria Immigration Service (”NIS”)
whose appointment took effect from 15th May, 2016 has issued a directive
to the effect that companies in the oil and gas sector must provide evidence of registration with the Nigeria Content and Development Management Board,(“NCDMB”) before a Temporary Work Permit (“TWP”) cablegram is issued.
The directive is to ensure that companies in the oil and gas industry are compliant with the federal government’s local content policy as well as forestall abuse of the TWP visa in the oil and gas industry.
What Companies and Foreign Nationals need to Know!
Companies affected should ensure that the necessary approvals are procured from the (“NCDMB”) and (“COREN”) before an application for a TWP visa is made.
