Harry Purwanto, the Indonesian ambassador to Nigeria, revealed on Tuesday that the Indonesian embassy in Nigeria will no longer be involved in visa processing, but only in the collection of visa applications.
Purwanto revealed this new visa policy to the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos. In his statement, this is what he said…
“Under the new policy, we as an Embassy in Nigeria have been withdrawn from processing visas. All we are now required to do is to collect visa applications and send them to Indonesia for processing. We now have to be taking authority from Jakarta. We, therefore, want to tell Nigerians seeking visas to Indonesia to now begin their applications at least two weeks in advance, to enable us send their applications on time to Jakarta.”
