Seychelles has imposed a ban on Nigerian passport holders applying for short-term visas or holiday purposes.

The Announcement

The news was first brought to light by a travel content creator, @munafromtravelletters, who shared a screenshot of the rejection email she received. The email stated, “We regret to inform you that your application has been denied, as per immigration regulation, for now we are not accepting any NIGERIAN passport holder for holiday purposes.”

“It seems Seychelles just placed a ban on Nigerian passport holders. The thing with having a Nigerian passport is you can be postponing travel plans until you become Bill Gates and immigration policies will be like ‘Dey play’,” she wrote in the caption.

The Implications

This ban comes as a shock, especially considering that just six months ago, Nigeria signed a pact for direct flights between the two countries. Prior to the ban, Nigeria had a long-standing visa-free agreement with Seychelles, which allowed Nigerian citizens free entry without a visa for 30 days.

The implications of this ban are far-reaching. As @Chuks Okoriekwe, a commentator on the issue, noted, “In the world of diplomacy, where a country blatantly denies ALL Nigerian passport holders entry, it’ll have serious backlash within the international community. It’s time for reciprocity by @NigeriaGov.”

The Response

The Nigerian government and the international community are yet to respond to this development. However, the ban has already sparked a heated debate among netizens, with many calling for a reciprocal action from the Nigerian government.
