The Federal Government of Nigeria has slashed visa application charges for citizens of the United States from $180 to $160.
NAN reports that this was contained in a memo marked NIS/HQ/CGI/806/7 and addressed to the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The old amount comprised $160 as visa fee and $20 as “processing and expedient fees.”
Comptroller-General of Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), Muhammad Babandede, said the reduction followed a review of the visa reciprocity fee slammed on Nigeria last August.
The decision is one of the four taken against Africa’s most populous country in eight months.
