Ecuadorian Ambassador to Nigeria, Amb. Deopoldo Rovayo, says his country, Ecuador and Nigeria have agreed to sign a visa free agreement.
Rovavo made the announcement in Abuja on Wednesday when he paid a courtesy visit to the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Amb. Olukunle Bamgbose.
He disclosed the purpose of his visit was to strengthen bilateral ties between his country and Nigeria, especially in the communication sector.
According to him, it is also to initiate an agreement between the two nations to enable their nationals visit each other’s country without having to apply for visa.
He said this was necessary because the number of Nigerians in Ecuador were now increasing more than before.
The envoy said that there were approximately about one thousand Nigerians living in Ecuador and that the number would continue to rise.
Bamgbose assured the envoy that the Federal Government would work with Ecuador on how to implement the non-visa agreement.
Apart from Ecuador, these are the other countries that your Nigerian passports can currently enter without visa.
