The Federal Government of Nigeria has taken their stand on the fixed decision of deportation of undocumented aliens that fail to take part in the E-registration of the Nigerian Immigration Service would be deported after the January 12, 2020 deadline.

The spokesman for the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS), Sunday James stated that any Nigerian who engaged undocumented migrant as a housekeeper, guard or nannies might be sentenced to seven year imprisonment and fined NGN1M by the court from January 2020.

The NIS also said aliens who failed to participate in the ongoing e-registration would be deported and might be barred from returning to Nigeria.

James advised Nigerian employers of irregular migrants to encourage them to register with the NIS in order to avoid the strict sanctions awaiting defaulters.
