NIGERIA: Abolition of Re-entry Visa

Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has abolished the requirement to obtain re-entry visas for re-entering the country by expatriates who are already resident in Nigeria.

It has not been indicated yet when the new policy becomes effective. However, once implemented, it will mean that assignees working in Nigeria would not require a re-entry visa (e.g. SJRV, MJRV, etc.) in their passport to re-enter the country each time they travel out, as long as they have a valid residence permit/green card.
