A letter from the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation on the aforementioned subject has been brought to the Management of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission’s (NiDCOM) notice.
On October 17, 2022, the government of Equatorial Guinea published a report recommending foreign nationals living there without documentation to leave freely or risk punishment.
This, according to the report, aims to reduce sabotage activity and foster stability in Equatorial Guinea.
The letter further indicated that foreign nationals must pay between $410 and $620 to secure a one- or two-year residence visa.
As a Commission dedicated to the welfare of its people, we suggest that Nigerians in Equatorial Guinea renew their visa if at all possible or submit an application to come back home to Nigeria, if undocumented, to avoid sanctions by the Government of Equatorial Guinea.
