US Embassy Releases Statement On Nigerian Travel To US by obidevine(m): 6:42pm On Mar 08, 2017
The US Embassy in Nigeria via their official website releases statement telling Nigerians willing to travel to the US with valid visas to go ahead and make the trip.


The U.S. Embassy in Abuja wishes to clarify that there is no reason for Nigerians with valid visas to postpone or cancel their travel to the United States. Nigeria is not named in the Executive Order on Immigration issued on March 6, and there is no prohibition against Nigerian lawful permanent residents or persons with a valid visa or other U.S. government authorization from entering the United States.

OP, re-arrange your post. Why occupying the first one with just a link. Paste the whole info at your first post before you go ahead to claim FTC.


They still didn't address the issue of people who got turned back at the port of entry if it was as a result of possible fraud or possible overzealousness from their officers.

Nice to hear this information
Re: US Embassy Releases Statement On Nigerian Travel To US by anitank(f): 10:48pm On Mar 08, 2017
But of course they'd say that so people don't stop paying the N54,400 visa fee.

I was at the US embassy on Monday and was rejected visa for the very first time. Their reason: I don't have a very 'strong tie' to show that I'd come back to Nigeria. Meanwhile I've been to the US 14 times, and came back 14 times!! With clear evidences on my passport and their system.

Nigeria may not be among the 6 countries with an obvious travel ban, but trust me the new executive order has Nigeria on their watchlist too

When I say we practice reactive diplomacy, some people will come here and call me out. Abike Dabiri's utterances during the SA xenophobia and the US travel advise make me wonder what she learnt after all her years in public service with the NTA.

1. Abike should have consulted with the Foreign Minister before making such statement; Godfrey Onyema is the Head of Nigeria's diplomatic team both home and abroad, not Abike.

2. There are no records that she sought clarifications from the US government or embassy before making comments.

3. She is an S.A., her duties are advisory, not managerial; she should stop trying so hard to hug the limelight.

I am proudly Yoruba and I approve this message!

I believe only Hon Abike as far as Nigerian foreign relation is concerned.The Minster isn't speaking for Nigeria,he was silent while South Africa where killing his people,he has said nothing of what is going on in India,and he was in a hurry to defined America when he has done nothing to defend Nigeria.I repeat Abike for Foreign Affairs Minister

The main reason why they deported some people at the port of entry was because there returning date is too far. How can someone in his/her right sense buys a ticket that has a returning date of almost 3 to 4 months while claiming they're going there 3weeks holiday.

This proves that the present government in Nigeria do not wish its citizens well.
Why should Abike Dabiri tell Nigerians to postpone their travel to Usa, or not to travel at all.

And people that don't have important reasons for being there. The way they answer questions also plays a huge part, not all Nigerians are capable of comprehension.
