This move aligns with broader efforts to showcase Nigeria's potential as an investment hub and tourist destination. It underscores the government's recognition of the pivotal role foreign investment and tourism play in driving economic development.

The revised visa policy is poised to improve Nigeria's global competitiveness and encourage greater engagement with its diverse cultural and economic offerings. Investors and tourists can now expect a more efficient and welcoming experience when visiting this dynamic West African nation.

"Our visa procedures are growing increasingly onerous.Our visa procedures are also linked to how easy it is to do business with us. From now on, it will be simple for tourists and investors to obtain a visa in the next 48 hours.

"Human interactions will be eliminated with the new visa processing time, which will be available in less than 48 hours. Making sure the government expedites the process of making doing business easier is the problem.
