As soccer-loving fans eagerly await the commencement of the 2022 FIFA World Cup held in Qatar, the Embassy of Nigeria in Doha, Qatar warmly welcomes fans from Nigeria that will be traveling for the tournament.

The Embassy wishes to strongly advise that Nigerian fans traveling for the soccer fiesta should endeavor 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. The advice was contained in a statement made available to journalists by the Spokesperson of the Embassy, Mr. Kimiebi Imomotimi Ebienfa.

Moreso, the Embassy wishes to state unequivocally that the special world cup visa called the Hayya card and Entry Permit cannot and will not be changed or transferred to a work visa or permit. Nigerians should therefore not fall victim 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.
