Nigerian Government Cautions Citizens Against Travelling to the United States
Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has advised Nigerians who have no compelling or urgent reason to travel to the United States to postpone their travel plans until the new administration’s policy on immigration was made clear.
In a statement by Mr. Abdurrahman Balogun, the warning became imperative due to series of reports received by Abike Dabiri-Erewa’s office.
She said: “In the last few weeks, the office has received a few instances of Nigerians with valid multiple-entry US visas being denied entry and sent back to Nigeria.
“In such cases reported to the office, such affected persons were sent back immediately on the next available flight and their visas were cancelled. No reasons were given for the decision by the US immigration authorities”
