"Postpone Less Urgent US Visits" - FG Tells Nigerians


The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Abike Dabiri-Erewa in a statement signed by her media aide, Abdurrahaman Balogun on monday has advised Nigerians who have no urgent reason to travel to the U.S to postpone their travel plans until the new administration’s policy on immigration is clear.

“In the last few weeks, the office has received a few cases of Nigerians with valid multiple-entry US visas being denied entry and sent back to Nigeria.”

“In such cases reported to the office, the affected persons were sent back immediately on the next available flight and their visas were cancelled.”

Dabiri-Erewa said that “no reasons were given for the decision by the U.S immigration authorities.”

She however said that the statement “is only to advise Nigerians without any compelling or essential reasons to visit the U.S to consider rescheduling their trip until there is clarity on the new immigration policy.”

Dabiri also reminded Nigerians in the Diaspora to abide by the rules and regulations of their host countries and be good ambassadors of the country.
