It says the bearer can only come into the country for business purposes only meaning it is a visit visa.

While reposting the document on Facebook, a user, Pela’s Line said:

“Have you seen a Nigeria visa before? I think this is a business visa, you can see employment is prohibited, this person can only do business which is the reason the visa was issued. Imagine he comes in and starts looking for a job in Nigeria. Now this is what happens when you get tourist visa and then decide that you want to get a job, once they ask for your passport they will see you are not allowed to work.”

Checks on the website of the Nigerian Immigration Services show that Nigerian visa costs as low as N18k and as high as N1.7 million depending on where it is processed.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that a Nigerian man was duped after he paid fake agents for visa.

The man sold his two cars and a parcel of land he inherited from his father to raise the money to travel to Canada.

But it appears his dreams will not come true because the person doing the visa for him has disappeared without a trace.
