The presence and employment of expatriates in Nigeria are restricted. Government regulations and policies allow the presence and employment of expatriates whose entry will benefit Nigeria and not compromise the security of the country. The Nigeria Immigration Service of the Federal Ministry of Interior processes applications for entry into Nigeria and for employment of expatriates in Nigeria.

Temporary employment visas are granted to expatriates on short visits to undertake specialized jobs. These applications are made in Nigeria directly to the Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Immigration Service by companies and organizations responsible for bringing in the expatriates. Specific information about the expatriate and the nature of the job must be furnished.

Expatriates may transfer from one company to another if the prior consent of the Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Immigration Service is obtained. To obtain consent, the previous employer should signify in writing that he or she has no objection to the change of employment, and the employee should apply for the transfer to the Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Immigration Service. If the applicant is a married woman, her husband must give his consent in writing. A valid expatriate-quota position for the applicant must be available.
