Why USA Rejects Most Visa Applications From Nigerians by ItuExchange(m): 1:21am On Dec 07
Why is the US embassy in Nigeria not issuing B1/B2 visa to Nigerians in recent times no matter how important or urgent their reasons for travel are? Are Nigerians currently blacklisted?


No Nigerians are not currently blacklisted.

I once answered this question before but I will summarize the answer again. The embassy is not relaxed due to demand in visas, Hence they receive so many applicants every day. US visa officers pay less attention to submitted documents, or they don’t even look at them. It is expensive and time demanding to verify documents. Therefore, they use your body language and circumstances to quickly take a decision and hand over the blue paper to you.

Western Europe foreign missions most especially Germany always verify documents and based their denial on submitted documents. American Embassy is you and your confidence.

It is sad that wrong people get visa approval and people with good intentions get visa denial. That is one of the reasons why we pray to God for a favor . One thing again is your reason for the visit?

They also have statistics of those that were given visa in the past, if they returned and if they didn’t. On what purpose were they given visa?? All these pieces of information could be used to be biased about future applicants.

In General, Visiting visa is the most difficult visa to get because you need to demonstrate to the VO that you gonna return home. This is a difficult task and Nigerian government ain’t helping because all foreign mission thinks all Nigerians wanna run away. That's the struggle of living in a Third world country Bro, Sad.

I just cannot believe that this answer went so viral, Thank you all for reading and for this reason, I have decided to upload the blue paper that is usually given by the VO once your Visa is denied.

If you check that law paragraph (214(b)) according to the US immigration law, It implies that the denied applicant is a potential immigrant. That means you need to really prove to them that you have strong ties to your country.

What are considered strong ties to my home country?

Ties are the various aspects of your life that bind you to your home country. Strong ties vary from country to country, city to city, and person to person, but examples include:

Your job;
Your home; and/or
Your relationships with family and friends.
While conducting visa interviews, consular officers look at each application individually and consider the applicant's circumstances, travel plans, financial resources, and ties outside of the United States that will ensure the applicant’s departure after a temporary visit.

Because of bad governance in third world countries, It is not that always easy for the citizens to even prove strong ties to your own country. This is absolutely sad because freedom is something that everyone should enjoy. Many of these countries are also trying to discourage economic immigrants. If you put all these factors together, getting a visa to for some nationalities is just tough, but they did not blacklist Nigerians. I know that Indians, Bangladesh, and many other nationalities are also facing thes ame issue.

I hope that I have now perfectly answered your question.

The bone of contention is not necessarily the rejection.

It is their country and they reserve the prerogative to accept or deny applicants entry into the USA

The problem is the N350, 000 non-refundable fee the applicants would have paid to get to the interview stage.

It is refundable in other countries but non-refundable here. Why? Visa is 5 years in Kenya but 2 years in Nigeria. Why?

If the fee is refundable, i can assure you a lot of the complaints will diminish.

But the truth is this;

The high influx of Nigerians trying to get into the Usa, and the debilitating state of our economy, has enabled and emboldened the US embassy office to turn the visa applicants into a money making racket.

The answer is simple and not far fetched. They think we are all LIFELESS like our president.

Or they believe we are all lazy and looking for oil money, just like our president had told them when his mouth was doing promo

It is non refundable now yet a lot of people are risking it to apply. If they make it refundable, then more than half of Nigeria population will storm their embassy to try their luck since they have nothing to lose. Lol

They say verifying documents is expensive so what do they do with the incredibly high visa fees people pay? Visa fees should be refundable

Baba, your opinion. They should refund visa fees of people from failed state or simply close their embassy cause the visa fee is someone's monthly salary. It's even more than minimum wage and N-Power

They should just close their embassy since they no longer grant Visa... 57000 for visa fee.. Thats quite high.... And finally the desperation of Nigerian wanted to leave the country also part of it.... It's only in Nigeria u see multitude of applicants.a friend who base in Japan was surprised to see less than 30 applicants at the America embassy in Japan when he went for visa interview and in less than 47 seconds he got his 2yrs visa.and when I asked him why n he told me it bcoz the citizens are comfortable so what are they going to do in the US.. So lastly everything still go back to our government.. If we are comfortable at home why traveling out of the country
