UAE Bans 20 African Countries Including Ghana and Nigeria From 30-day Visas


The United Arab Emirates has slammed a blanket visa ban on all citizens of Nigeria, Ghana and at least 17 other African countries, according to reports.

“This is to inform you that we will not be posting 30 days visa applications for these nationalities effective today, October 18, 2022,” according to a report that cited a notice from Emirati authorities to travel agencies in Dubai and affected countries.

Countries affected by the visa ban include Ghana, Sierra Leone, Sudan, Cameroon, Nigeria, Liberia, Burundi, Republic of Guinea, Gambia, Togo, Democratic Republic of Congo, Senegal, Benin, Ivory Coast, Congo, Rwanda, Burkina Faso, Guinea Bissau, Comoros. The Dominican Republic is the only non-African nation on the list, and it was unclear why the country’s citizens were banned.

No reason was given as to why UAE had taken the decision, but sources said the move was aimed at keeping away African nationalities who had taken advantage of the visit visas to overstay in the UAE.
