Nigerian Government: avoid all but essential travel to the US.
Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Senior Special Assistant to the president on Foreign affairs and Diaspora has advised Nigerians who have no compelling or urgent reason to travel to the US to postpone their travel plans until the new Trump’s administration’s policy on immigration was clear.
In a statement signed by her assistant on media, Mr Abdurrahman Balogun, she said that this advice was imperative because of the reports received by her office of Nigerians being denied entry into the U.S despite having multiple entry US visas.
She said: “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, 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.”
