UAE ban on Nigerian travellers
The ban placed against people from Nigerian traveling to United Arab Emirates authorities has been extended.
This comes after UAE announced it’s extending the ban on Nigerian flights to Dubai until March 20.
A statement from the Public Relations officer of the Emirate Airlines said that customers from both Abuja and Lagos would not be accepted for travel prior to or including this date.
The statement, however, failed to reveal if Emirates flights from Dubai to Lagos and Abuja will continue as scheduled.
“In line with government directives, passenger services from Nigeria, to Dubai are temporarily suspended until 20 March 2021.
“Moreso, customers from both Abuja and Lagos will not be able to travel prior to or including this date.
“Passengers who have been to or connected through Nigeria in the last 14 days are equally not allowed entry into Dubia,” the statement said.
