China Approves Group Visa For Nigerians

Austin Papi

China is widely regarded as an economic powerhouse where most Nigerian businessmen purchase large quantities of goods. The Chinese government has now begun a new visa scheme that will allow Nigerians who wish to travel to their country, China, as a group for business or tourism purposes.

A minimum of five persons in a group will be able to apply for a group visa, starting from August 1, 2019. Meanwhile, Nigerian travellers can only apply for the visa through just one International travel agency called, Bravo International Tour Services of Beijing, as they were granted the exclusive rights to process group visas to Nigerian tourists and businessmen.

Me Daniel Yang, CEO of Bravo International services, has stated that the deal will improve the cultural communications between China and Nigeria. He made this known in Lagos while signing a mega deal with a Nigerian travel agency,1860 Travels.

“We are now the only Chinese company that can process the group visa, not the business visa, the group visa. We can bring Nigerians to China through the group visa. In other words, people seeking a Chinese group visa have to apply through us.

“The group visa requires a minimum of five persons. Four persons cannot obtain a group visa, they must be at least five persons,” Daniel Yang announced.
