Stella Fubara-Obinwa, an official of Dubai Tourism disposed the rumor that Nigerians are banned from entering the United Arab Emirates.
She made this claim during a webinar organized by the National Association of Nigeria Travel Agencies (NANTA).
In her words,
“I challenge the people to show me any publication from the United Arab Emirates which states that Nigerians has been banned from the country. This is fake news and I am not happy with the development from Nigeria Travel Agents”
She added that Nigeria is very important to Dubai as she has the highest number of travelers to Dubai, out of the 41 sub-Sahara countries.
Dubai has been opened to tourists from July 7 and all COVID-19 restrictions are been adhered to.
