The Federal Government is working on ways to ensure there is an improved visa policy between Nigeria and Qatar, a country in the Middle East.

Sirika says the restrictions on both sides are making it difficult for the two countries to connect as expected.

According to his Twitter post on the Federal Aviation Ministry page, the Aviation Minister said Nigeria and Qatar should have a sustainable relationship.

Mr. Silica said Qatar is rich in oil and gas, as well as other areas of investment, just as Nigeria has the necessary infrastructure for smooth business operations.

In the past, Nigeria has had slight disputes with some Middle East countries when it comes to visa policies and even route connectivities.
Last year, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) immigration authorities announced a ban on visa applications from Nigerians over a diplomatic row.
