Nigeria has advised it citizens against non-urgent travel to the US after several Nigerians with valid visas were denied entry.
The statement comes from Abike Dabiri-Erewa, a special adviser to the president on foreign affairs.
“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 the 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.”
Ms Dabiri -Erewa said that “no reasons were given for the decision by the US immigration authorities.”
She urged those without “any compelling or essential reasons to visit the US to consider rescheduling their trip until there is clarity on the new immigration policy”.
