USA Earns N4 Billion Rejecting Nigerian Visa Applicants - See Details


The United States Embassy in Nigeria has made an estimated N4 billion on visa applications it rejected in 2015. Information obtained indicates that there were a total of 202,267 Visa applications, from which the US embassy made about $32.4million. Of these, 65, 858 applications were denied, yielding a denial rate of 32.56%. Despite the harsh treatment thousands of Nigerians still want to visit the United States, with some seeking for greener pastures abroad whilst others harbour genuine intentions to visit and return to Nigeria, their home country.

For instance an applicant could have a fledgling business in Nigeria, earning N50 million per annum and have family back in Nigeria, however the CO can still deny the application on a general ground under section 214(b).
