Robbery: We didn’t review visa validity for Nigerians –UAE

The United Arab Emirates has denied  report  it has reviewed the visa validity for Nigerians from three to one month.

The UAE Embassy in a statement  on Friday said  it had not suspended tourist visas for Nigerians.

The statement  said, “In the light of the press reports published this morning, and alleging that the United Arab Emirates had suspended issuing tourist visas to Nigerian nationals, the United Arab Emirates Embassy in Abuja would like to announce these news are inaccurate, and stresses the importance of getting news from its official channels.”

After five Nigerians robbed a  bureau de change in  the UAE, a travel company tweeted that the  Arabian Peninsula nation had reviewed its visa process for Nigerians.

The suspects  were arrested for allegedly robbing the bureau de change in Sharjah of Dh2.3 million, the police said on Sunday.

They reportedly smashed the glass barrier between customers and  workers, stole the money in multiple currencies and fled.

They were, however, arrested some minutes later.
