Romanian Embassy In Nigeria Shut Over Ebola


1min read

The Romanian Embassy in Nigeria has shut its doors to Nigerians wishing to travel to the Eastern European Country for fear of the deadly Ebola Virus Disease, EVD, in spite of the successful eradication of the virus from the country.

It has instead directed Nigerians wishing to travel to the country to go to its embassies in Senegal, Angola or Kenya to obtain travelling VISAs.

In a notice placed on its Abuja office, the Embassy said, “In the context created in this period of the spread of the Ebola virus in West Africa, please take into consideration the fact that the term settlement of the Visa applications may be extended”.

It will be recalled that Senegal which was referred to in the release also had traces of Ebola before the country alongside Nigeria were declared Ebola free.

Nigeria has not recorded any case of the deadly Ebola Virus Disease since August 31 and is due to be certified Ebola-free by the World Health Organisation, WHO, on October 20.

The Nigerian government and foreign affairs ministry are yet to react to the development.
