In line with international standards and best practices, the Nigerian federal government has introduced 30-second biometric clearance gates at all international airports nationwide, managed by the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS).

These innovative gates efficiently screen and clear passengers within half a minute, eliminating the need for direct interaction with Immigration personnel. The implementation of these gates aims to streamline clearance services for travelers arriving at any of Nigeria’s international airports.

During an inspection visit to the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja and the Command and Control Centre at the NIS Headquarters, Tunji-Ojo emphasized the significance of these facilities. He stated that they would revolutionize the management of international passengers, enhancing effectiveness and efficiency in immigration processes.The integration of the Advanced Passenger Information System (APIS) and the Command and Control Centre not only facilitates seamless entry and exit for passengers but also strengthens the nation’s National Security Architecture.
