The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has lifted a year-long visa ban imposed on Nigerian travelers.

The restriction placed last October was lifted following negotiations between Nigeria’s President Bola Tinubu and UAE leader Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan in Abu Dhabi, on Monday.

President Tinubu’s spokesperson Ajuri Ngelale says following the agreement, Emirates and Etihad airlines are to resume Nigeria flight operations immediately.
