The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama disclosed this on Wednesday in a statement by his Special Assistant, Media, Ms. Sarah Sanda.

Onyeama said that the agreement was reached at a meeting in Windhoek with Namibian Ministers led by the country’s Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Mrs. Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah. He said that the agreed mechanism for achieving this was through a meeting of the Joint Commission which will be held in 2020.

“We addressed recent issues regarding the issuance of visas to Namibians and Nigerians and entry into Namibia for Nigerians and reached very important and concrete agreements in respect of those. “Any Namibian wishing to obtain a visa to Nigeria can apply and will be considered as that was the case in the past.

“Once the requirements are met, such a person will be issued a visa. It applies to a Nigerian wishing to go to Namibia,” Onyeama said.

The minister added that the meeting agreed that in the case of any visa denial or deportation, visas would not be stamped in the holders’ passport. According to him, the ministers decided that consular meetings will be held quarterly to evaluate progress.
