Nigeria and South Africa have reached the agreement on issuing 10 years visas to businessmen, academics and frequent travellers.

Garba Shehu, senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, disclosed this in a statement on Friday.

He said it was a followup to the successful conclusion of the 9th Bi-National Commission of South Africa and Nigeria meeting in Pretoria, South Africa, which was elevated to President Muhammadu Buhari and President Cyril Ramaphosa of South Africa.

“The decision was taken to encourage more people-to-people contacts among citizens of both countries and further strengthen socio-cultural, economic and political relations,” Shehu said.

“At the meeting held at the Union Buildings, Presidential Palace of South Africa, the two Presidents agreed on early warning signals to nip violence in the bud before it escalates, while taking into consideration the need to share more intelligence and promote stronger partnership in security.

“Both countries also agreed to re-establish the consular forum, which is a structured arrangement where both governments meet regularly, at least twice in a year to discuss the welfare of citizens.

“The Nigerian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, and South African Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Dr. Naledi Pandor, signed the minutes of the 9th session of Bi-National Commission.”
