NIS introduces MIDAS, clearance procedures for int’l travellers
Following the introduction of Migration Information Data Analysis System (MIDAS), the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has issued fresh clearance procedures for international travelers.
The clearance procedures provide that all persons crossing Nigeria’s international borders must appear before an immigration officer at an immigration counter for verification.
A statement issued by the Public Relations Officer of NIS, Sunday James, indicated that apart from appearing before an officer, such intending passengers must submit their national passports and other relevant travel documents that may be requested.
It added that the procedures are in line with the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) guidelines on international travel and all persons travelling outside the country are to comply with the procedures on passenger clearance, as stipulated in the Immigration Act, 2015.
