FG Warns Citizens Against Non-Urgent U.S Travel

The 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 U.S to postpone their travel plans until the new administration’s policy on immigration is clear.

A statement signed in Abuja by Special Assistant on Media to Dabiri-Erewa, Abdurrahman Balogun, said that the warning became imperative due to series of reports received by the office of the SSA.

“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.”

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

The Presidential aide 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.”

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