South Africa Set Up Visa Office In Port Harcourt, Nigeria
The South African High Commissioner to Nigeria, Mr Louis Mngani, says visa office established in Port Harcourt is to boost operations between Nigeria and South Africa.
In a statement signed by Mr Opubo Inko-Tariah, the Special Adviser, Media and Publicity of the High Commission, Mngani made the remark at the inauguration of the South African e-visa office in Port Harcourt on Thursday.
According to him, since 1994 when the first elected South African president came to power, the tie between the two countries gets stronger by the day.
Mngani expressed the hope that the presence of the centre would be beneficial to residents and boost trade between the two countries.
He said that the choice of Port Harcourt was due to its status as an economic hub in the country.
The South African Consular General, Mugesi Monaisa, said that the visa centre was among the three established in the country to palliate the suffering prospective visitors and tourists experienced in obtaining visas to South Africa.
Monaisa said that the centre would provide an advice for those ready to do business in South Africa.
In his speech, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, stated that the state is investors haven as it is the most hospitable and lucrative place for investment.
