Na Nigerians dey fall our own hands... nobody is supposed to "make things easy for us". Did you know Koreans and Japanese can visit USA visa-free for 90 days? This happened due to their own hard work to build their economy. It's like we want to eat yam from our backyard but don't want to plant and weed the farm.

We need to also be strict in our immigration laws for Americans.
We need them, they don't need us.

When they see any of us they need, they take that person, e.g I had a girl in my secondary School that was very good at basketball, they gave her 100 percent scholarship to come school in the US and play collage basketball, just like that, she didn't have any issues or so.

If only Nigerians can manage and not apply to that embassy for a year, they will come begging and trying to lure us with fake opportunities. Those guys are making serious money from applications sent to them. Usa embassy is a scam!!

Based on this policy now, they will start denying people renewing their visas also. Every country just dey try extort naija sha. I know that things will be better one day, either in our generation or the next.

This is the reason for the suspension of interview waivers for visa renewals in Nigeria.

According to data provided by U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Consular Affairs, Nigeria alone accounted for 132,137 (or over 25 percent) of non-immigrant visas issued to Africans in 2018. Nigeria also came third, behind Brazil and Venezuela, for countries with a record of visa overstays in 2018.
http://www.financialnigeria.com/u-s-suspends-interview-waivers-for-visa-renewals-in-nigeria-news-1835.html

And it is a follow-up to this article in the Wall Street Journal:

President Trump and his top aides are weighing rules designed to clamp down on countries whose nationals overstay short-term visitor visas as part of a broader push for new ways to curb immigration.

The effort would target nationals of countries with high overstay rates of such visas, which include the African nations of Nigeria, Chad, Eritrea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, according to Department of Homeland Security data.

Does it mean that for someone who's abroad with few months to the expiration of his visa, the person will have to come back to Nigeria and be interviewed for renewal?

You’re most likely one of the reasons they cancelled this. It is against the law to renew a non-immigrant visa while physically present in the US. You’ve been abusing the Dropbox for years.

Ghana was also banned!!
I haven’t checked for other black African countries.


This policy target only black countries even though we have the smallest number of visa defaulters in the states when compared to the likes of Canada, China, Vietnam and most other non-black countries...

Canadians do not require a visa to enter the United States. I think it’s clear your comment is borne out of ignorance.

Beautiful. This is a very laudable move. Only if other countries that Nigeria and Africa as a whole see as safe heaven will toughen their immigration policies, those in diaspora and those aspiring to emigrate will sit back and fight for the development of their countries.

To clean up Nigeria requires a form of fundamental cleansing....cultural and otherwise. I'm just saying....where do you even start? LOL...goodluck!!!! There is a higher chance that place will implode than get better.

you sound more unintelligent because you lack the ability to tell yourself the bitter truth. A 5hithole aptly describes the black african continent! Never mind the messenger, focus on the message!

God bless you. You make the most sense here. Trump is a racist and his policy is MAWA which means Make America White Again. Here in America, the White Nationalists calls it Browning of America and that's why they want to limit people of color travelling to America. Next move for the Racist Trump is finding a way to stop the Visa Lottery Program.

Nigeria has been ineligible for the visa lottery program long before trump. This isn’t about racism, it’s about a country seeking to protect itself from a people incapable of running a functioning country who want to overrun theirs.
