Nigerian Embassy In Qatar Urges World Cup-Bound Fans To Comply With Regulations

As football-loving fans eagerly await the commencement of the 2022 FIFA World Cup holding in Qatar from 20th November to 18th December, the Embassy of Nigeria in Doha, Qatar has warmly welcomed fans travelling for the tournament, and urged them to respect the laws of the host country.

In a statement by the spokesman of the embassy, Mr Kimiebi Imomotimi Ebienfa reads: “The Embassy wishes to strongly advise that Nigerian fans travelling for the soccer fiesta should endeavour to obey and respect the laws of the host country while in Qatar and ensure that they comply with all relevant guidelines/requirements for visiting fans before embarking on any trip.

Moreso, the Embassy wishes to state unequivocally that the special World Cup visa called Hayya card and Entry Permit cannot, and will not be changed or transferred to work visa or permit.

Nigerians should therefore not fall victims to unscrupulous elements spreading fake news in that regard to rip off innocent Nigerians.

“On a final note, the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Nigeria encourages all visiting fans to enjoy the best experience at the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup”.
