The Federal Government on Wednesday said that foreigners with valid visitors pass or resident permit with confirmed return tickets scheduled to travel out would be issued relevant government extensions at no cost.
The Federal Government through the Ministry of Interior headed by Rauf Aregbesola, said this will enable the beneficiaries to reschedule their flights and travel within one week whenever the restriction on travel is suspended.
This was contained in a statement by the NIS spokesman, Sunday James on Wednesday.
The statement said, “In the light of the above, all visitors and migrants holding valid visitors pass or resident permit with confirmed return tickets scheduled to travel out within the period of the international travel restriction, are to be issued with relevant extensions at no cost to enable the beneficiaries to reschedule their flights and travel within one week whenever the embargo is suspended by the Federal Government.”
The ministry noted that visitors who overstay beyond the waiver period will be made to pay for overstay.
“Furthermore, anyone that overstays beyond the waiver period whenever the restriction is lifted by the Federal Government is to promptly comply by paying for overstay.”
