Best Countries Where One Can Go To Gain Travel Experience by proeast(m): 8:18pm On Oct 10, 2021
Please which countries can one safely travel to for purposes of gaining travel experience (I realised it is one of the basic prerequisites to increase chances of getting American visa). I ultimately intend to travel to United States for periodic visits but I don't have prior travel experience.

I know about Dubai as good for this, however I don't intend on going for just tourism or for shopping, but a country where one can stay for like 6 months and maybe teach English (in non English speaking countries) or any other job to make the experience worthwhile and also recover some of the visa/flight expenses.

Like I said earlier, I don't intend to live in such country beyond 6 months. Also, how much should one budget for it?

Travel experience has nothing to do with being able to obtain a US' visa for whatever reason. What matters are money and intent. Regarding such countries where you can teach English to pass time, aim at Asian countries esp South Eastern and maybe North Asia. Another place is South America but expect stiff competition from Americans. The issue is that those countries prefer westerners aka oyibos over blacks let alone black Africans. Also, young westerners especially British and Americans flock to those countries to teach English and let's be frank, 9 out of 10, most non-English speakers or tutoring agencies will prefer them to learn English from or teach their students over black Africans. Moreover, they and not Nigerians have easy access to those countries because of their passports' strengths.

If you intend to do "periodic visits" to the US, you don't have to try to recover visa/flight expenses via working in those countries. What that bold says is: you don't have the money to perform periodic travels.

Thanks for your detailed response. However, I was going through the US Visa thread and I found out that one of the reasons for rejecting visa seekers aside money and intent, was lack prior travels. Also, before my sister travelled to US, she first went to Dubai and some other African countries and when she eventually applied for American visa, it was granted at first application.

On the last paragraph, I certainly don't have the money to just go to the US for tourism purposes alone.
