US Travel Ban On Nigeria: What It Is And How It Affects You
The United States of America have extended its travel ban to Nigeria. On this post we will try to highlight what the ban is, and how it affects you.

Trump administration's visa and travel ban which is one of the US President's signature policies, now includes Nigeria.

This policy have blocked Nigerians from obtaining certain types of US visas.

The new ban will prevent all immigrants from Nigeria, Myanmar, Eritrea, and Kyrgyzstan from entering the US.

The ban also states that Tanzanian and Sudan citizens will no longer be able to apply for the "diversity visas," known as the green card lottery, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

The ban does not affect Nigerians whom are already in the US or those with a valid US visa, its mainly for new visa applicants.

The ban have shown how the United States currently sees Nigeria, for having Nigeria, Eritrea, Myanmar and Kyrgyzstan in the same category. Eritrea is the "North Korea of Africa", Myanmar is a pariah state & Kyrgyzstan is in the middle of nowhere. The US Government rates Nigeria as hell.

Nigeria is Africa's largest economy and the most populous country on the continent with 200 million people.

Before now, Nigeria boasts strong ties to the US, as the US has been a strong ally in Nigeria's fight against Boko Haram and cybercrime, among other causes. It is also Nigeria's main trading partner and a close diplomatic ally since 1960.

Nigerian immigrants in the US are considered one of the most successful and educated immigrant groups in the country, so if your dreaming of going to America, the only possible option for new Nigeria visa applicants is to nationalize in another African country, best place for the moment is Seychelles.

Now, this is what Nigerians should expect.

- More government setbacks

- Extortion from China and UK, due to US withdrawing their supports.

- Rise of Book Haram, and more terror groups.

- Politicians living abroad, as the new law favors those that are in government that already have visas.

- More poor Africans flooding Nigeria, as the Buhari government have made Nigeria visa free for Islamic African counties.

- Weak armed forces, as the US is Nigeria top arms ally.

- Collapsing healthcare during outbreaks, as the US was Nigerians foremost ally during Ebola outbreak.

- More refugees

- Currency depreciation, as the US business with Nigeria is the only support that backs the Naira.

- if your a Nigeria, with the American dream. S O R R Y.
