Following the immense success of previous seasons, Season 5 of Visa on Arrival promises viewers another engaging ride through the misadventures of characters navigating the fictional Nigerian visa issuance unit. The series humorously portrays the chaotic process of obtaining travel visas.

Key Background

Bovi Ugboma, a Nigerian stand-up comedian, actor, and writer, is renowned for organizing popular stand-up comedy concerts like Bovi: Man on Fire across the globe. Bovi began his career in April 2007, starring in the sitcom Extended Family, which he also wrote and produced, gaining significant popularity among fans.

In 2016, Bovi premiered his first movie, It’s Her Day, on September 9, which grossed 55 million Naira at the Nigerian box office. He also starred as the lead actor in the romantic comedy 4-1-Love  the same year.

In 2017, Bovi was nominated for the AMVCA awards as the best actor in comedy, marking his third individual nomination and fourth overall for his works. Despite limited mainstream publicity, the movie had a decent run in cinemas, grossing 55 million Naira.

In 2020, Bovi starred as a police officer in the remake of the Nollywood classic Nneka the Pretty Serpent. The following year, he wrote, co-produced, and starred in his second film, My Village People, which became one of 17 Nigerian films to gross 100 million Naira at the local box office.


A comparison of the views for the first episode of each season of Visa on Arrival  reveals a noticeable trend in audience engagement. The inaugural episode of Season 1 garnered an impressive 1.2 million views, setting a high benchmark for the series.

Season 2 followed closely with 1.1 million views for its premiere episode, maintaining strong viewer interest. However, there was a significant drop in Season 3, with the first episode attracting only 523,000 views, marking a decline in viewership.

This trend continued into Season 4, where the premiere episode received just 395,000 views. This comparison highlights a challenge for the series in retaining its initial audience over time, which Season 5 aims to address with fresh content and special guests.
