Passport Stamping Is Finally Free At Seme Border by caprini1: 7:32am On Nov 16, 2018
Finally after my many one man protests ,that Nigerians shouldn't b exploited by the compulsory payment of 500 naira to stamp passports of frequent travellers by Benin immigration officers and 200 naira by their Nigerian counterparts.
STAMPING OF PASSPORTS ARE NOW FREE.

There is a notice placed everywhere at the border instructing travellers not to pay a dime in any currency,I couldn't get a better picture because it was late in the night.

The beninoise officers now beg for money,unlike their previous compulsory collection ,pushing and shoving of Nigerians.

The major beneficiaries are people with virgin passports ,who ends up paying over 5000 naira just to get their passports stamped in both Nigeria (2k) ,Benin (3k)..

Everything is free , absolutely free...I guess this is one fight ,I am happy to say the masses won.
