Why we placed Nigeria on visa ban – US

The United States has give reasons why it imposed visa restrictions on Nigeria and five other countries.

Nigeria was included on the last last week alongside Eritrea, Myanmar, Tanzania, Sudan, and Kyrgyzstan.

According to the US, Nigeria did not comply with it’s security and information sharing standards.

The report read: “Nigeria also presents a high risk, relative to other countries in the world, of terrorist travel to the United States. Nigeria is an important strategic partner in the global fight against terrorism, and the United States continues to engage with Nigeria on these and other issues.”

“The Department of State has provided significant assistance to Nigeria as it modernises its border management capabilities, and the Government of Nigeria recognises the importance of improving its information sharing with the United States.

“Nevertheless, these investments have not yet resulted in sufficient improvements in Nigeria’s information sharing with the United States for border and immigration screening and vetting.”
