Indian Consulate In Vietnam Is Robbing Nigerians by proeast(m): 3:26pm On May 13
I just had a nasty experience at the Indian consulate in Ho Chi Minh City.

Here is the entire story:

On Friday, I went to the Indian consulate in HCMC to apply for one month tourist visa, after booking online the previous night. On getting to the consulate, the lady at the reception took my documents inside and after a while, returned to tell me that my visa has been granted in principle. That i have been issued with a single entry visa. However, I must pay 6.3000,000.00 VND about $250. I was shocked when I heard this because I already paid the agent that booked the appointment $100 thinking it included visa fees. They said it was because I’m a Nigerian and we are charged higher. Nevertheless, I decided to go ahead and pay the amount to save myself further stress. But the lady again, insisted I must pay cash.

I called a Vietnamese lady who accompanied me and she helped provide the balance because I had only 3+ million VND with me.

After paying, they collected my passport, Vietnamese visa and then conducted biometrics on me. Then I left.

This morning, I received a call from the consulate that I have to pay another 8 million VND otherwise my visa would not be issued to me. I was shocked and I told them that I can't pay a dime again. They either issue my visa or refund my money. The lady agreed that I should come and get the refund. However, on getting to the consulate, they refused to give me the refund. That it was a new policy. Eventually, I left with my passport. No visa! no $250!

I'm currently feeling robbed and dehumanized. I don't know how to go about this to seek justice.

Pls can anyone help me with advise or pro bono services because I believe I have a good case and such inhuman acts shouldn't be allowed.

Pls how can I get her contact? It’s obvious I’m not the only Nigerian they’re doing this. They will check the account statement you submitted, if they find reasonable amount in it, they will begin their extortion racketeering.

Some people are already volunteering here in Vietnam to take up the case.

This is sad.

Post this on Twitter. Tag the "Nigerians in Diaspora Commission." Tag "Abike Dabiri" and other relevant folks too.

The Nigerian Situation descends lower...
(as perfectly expected & predicted like persons like me)










Please if you have any sure Link or connects to a foreign 2nd Passport/Citizenship that's fairly good, Overseas or within African here, please Share.
Help some of us genuine, hard-working, educated Nigerians, that things are already so bleak, so so bleak, and it's going to get more bleaker. Please help us to have something, to have a backup.

Doesn't have to be Heavy heavy passport, something just good enough and guarantees high likelihood to get visa (if not visa free already) to most Countries when you apply.

Please, please help a few of us that are genuine.., pls share 'Update'.

Nawa o.

I guess they are treating Nigeria that way coz of too much drug trafficking and fraud committed in that country.

However, the embassy there are trying to defraud you. Even Abike Dabiri won’t be able to help if they indeed say it is their policy. You $250 is forfeited.

You can either take them to court but I doubt you’ll get justice in that country.

How is this our problem afterall, this didn't occur in Nigeria.

Nigerians are experiencing a lot in Nigeria already.

Anyway, go to the India Ministry of Foreign website, extract the helpline email and send a mail about your ordeal.

Hopefully you receive the help you want.

Indians are just bunch of silly cunts.
The same everywhere in the world.
Anywhere you see an Indian, be cautious.
They are heartless idiots

Is there no Nigeria High Commision/Embassy in Vietnam or neighboring country that oversee Vietnam Territory?

Write to Nigerian High Commissioner. You have a genuine case if you have a printable document and records of payment.
