General AB Dambazzau (rtd) in attendance.

Babandede said as demanded by the provisions of the Executive Order on the Transparency in MDAs,  conveyed via circular from the office of the Minister of Interior, the NIS has already created a line to be open on Wednesday for people to communicate with them anytime.

Speaking on the visa time line, he said, “The condition is clearly stated on our website. We have complied with the presidential Executive Order. 48 hours is the time line for you to get visa. If you apply for a visa and comply with our requirements, we will respond to you by email.”

In his remarks,  Dambazzau commended NIS and called on them to ensure strict compliance with the goals it has set for itself.

He assured that all agencies within his jurisdiction will comply with the Executive Order while also commending NIS for their remarkable development.
