Nigeria has advised its citizens against any non-urgent travel to the United States until the US clarifies its visa rules.
Africa’s most populous country was not one of the seven countries affected by US President Donald Trump’s initial travel ban.
But in a statement a special adviser to Nigeria’s president said there were several cases where Nigerians with valid US visas had been denied entry to the country ( see earlier entry ).
In light of this, the Nigerian government is now advising against all but essential travel.
This travel advisory will be seen as an extraordinary reflection of the uncertainty generated by President Trump’s executive orders.
You can trust that Nigerians would fully ignore and still take their chances.
