They don't have to receive sense, they can just continue to deny 99% of folks who come to the embassy for a visa. Easy.

Why should it be their responsibility to verify that your documents are genuine? they don't have to do that in civilized climes where people won't even contemplate fraud.

In Africa they have to verify....
That's why they are issuing visa to the wrong folks....

If they wont receive sense with their visa application policy then they should stop complaining on people misusing their B1B2 and F1 visa.
90% of African in the US today misused their visa.

You’re neither American nor European. Unlike Nigerians, neither are economic migrants and do not require visas to travel to most countries.

You’re making a false comparison here.
Yes, but 3000k naira is a lot more than 1,000 dollars.Nigeria is heavily subsidised. For example renting a room might be over 1000 dollars a month in US, while on the average in Lagos (which is expensive by Nigeria standard) will not be more than 50k a month. So there is opportunity to save for holidays on that pay.

But abeg, prolong am, please. That stats can never be correct. Unless you are quite quite young and all you have come to see and know is just recently. A lot of our folks left in the 70s, 80s and 90s, mostly grandparents now with generations of Americans being their offshoot. Immigrant visas via parents, spouses, siblings, children, etc are still accounting for a good number of Nigerians moving to the US. There’s the F1 and H1B categories too....

B1/B2 Overstay used to be minimal till only just lately, maybe even less than 5 years now and actually spiked astronomically in the last 1-2 years! The way Nigeria is currently is contributing a whole lot to this mess, so many financially comfortable people exiting Nigeria just like that, it’s tiring and shameful.

Yes, that's the current trend that has been happening over decades now but became more noticed now after the visa lottery for Nigerians stopped.

Either way, one cannot blame most Nigerians misusing their F1 or B1/B2 visas.

The US immigration has some very weak loop-holes that most non-immigrants are taking advantage of to legalize their stay once they get to the US.

One of the most commonly used and fastest one is when a person who got into the US through the visiting or student visa decides to get married to a US citizen after three months of his/her arrival into the US and then the US citizen files a petition for a green card for that's non-immigrant spouse...as long as the couple can prove that the marriage is real and not just for immigrant purposes.

And yes most Nigerians are very good with convincing their US citizen spouses that they are really in love with them...lol! cheesy

Very true.

Imagine a Senior Manager in CBN selling off all his properties in a bid to relocate. He said he is scared about the future of his kids if they remain here.

All the marketers of a particular bank branch applied for interview at the same period, ALL!

The affairs of the nation needs an overhaul & it needs to be done urgently.

Use Google Translate, copy & Paste my writing, it will detect English, in another window click Translate to English and you will see not even 1 word corrected by Google in my writing. Learn a little, Nigerian English is full of errors and the accent is very heavy, hard to understand. It always makes me laugh when a Nigerian tries to teach me English.
why don't you try putting that your message on microsoft Word??

Perhaps you shall see why others are frowning.

True. And America is a big country, country for all races. Everybody is welcome, all we want is to keep our country clean, wealthy and the new immigrants following the rules. And just remember, you are visitors until you own America becoming a USCs. You try to get visa, you try to come to America because you are not stupid and you heard the life here is better. Yet Americans, we are not stupid either, we welcome you but in order, we don't want you cheating on our system and transform America in Nigeria. Many of you try to escape bad things happening in Nigeria, don't behave in US the same as in your country. Once you start to live in US, you are the people who makes America great! Not the other way around.

Almost 30,000 Nigerians stayed beyond the period lawfully allowed by their visas in the US last year.
A total of 29,723 Nigerian immigrants who travelled to the United States of America in 2018 overstayed their visas according to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
Nigeria's high overstay rate might not be unconnected to the announcement this week by the U.S. embassy in Nigeria that the visa interview waiver for those renewing visas in the country has been indefinitely suspended.

I'm not saying the percentage is correct but who will wait for 2 to 14 years for USCIS to complete your application when you can just go online fill a form and beg a friend over there to send you an invite and you are good to go... Most people don't really know about immigrant visa....that why if some people shout I Don get visa I just shake my head for people praise them....they don't know their visa category

Is American visa easy to get?To get interview appointment alone one has to sleep on his laptop for days. After that you go for interview and the probabilty of success is about 10%. Do you go for interview for Netherland(Schengen) ,Canadian,Australian or UK visa and the probability of getting it is far more than the 10% success rate of US visa. My wife,daughter and my humble self all have canadian visa with the exception of my son who was born in Houston.And we all got it the first time we applied.Renewed again and got 5 years visa. So what is difficult in getting Canadian visa?
