Nigerian government imposes $200, $4000 fines on overstayed visitors

The Federal government has introduced a fine of $200 and $4000 dollars on visitors to Nigeria who overstayed their time as permitted by their visas. This a bid to monitor movements of foreigners in Nigeria.

The sanction, which depends on the number of days such a foreigner overstayed in the country, ranges from $200 to $4000, depending on the number of days such a foreigner stayed in Nigeria.

A document signed by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Interior indicated “that a foreigner would be adjudged to have overstayed in the country once such exceeded 56 days”.

“However, the sanction does not apply to citizens of Economy Community of West African States (ECOWAS) who can enter Nigeria and reside in the country without entry visas”.
