In continuation of the on-going digitalization of the entire work process at the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), the Comptroller General of the agency, Muhammad Babandede, MFR, has directed immediate migration from manual to e-mail based application for the issuance of Temporary Work Permit (TWP) with effect from Monday 8th June, 2020.
According a statement by the Deputy Comptroller of NIS and its National Public Relations Officer, DCI Sunday James, henceforth via email@example.com. companies/organisations are to check the NIS website: www.immigration.gov.ng for details.
He said: “This is the first step towards automation of TWP issuance. Companies are hereby advised to avoid the use of third party for a service that is now available free and e-based.
“They must use their official e-mail for transactions with the Service” James stated in a statement made available the media on Friday.
It would be recalled that earlier in the year, the NIS was awarded as the most reformed minded agency in Nigeria by the Presidency.
