USA and Canada rejects Study Visa Applications from Nigerian Citizens

By

This news flying around has it that USA and Canada have allegedly restricted Study Visa Applications from Nigerians.
The main cause of these Visa rejections/restrictions is yet to be ascertained.
.
So Canada rejects Study Visa applications coming from Nigerians because the administration has some deep-rooted biases against Nigerians?
.
I think Nigerians need to fix Nigeria and stay home for now as many Countries have restricted Nigerians from entering their countries at will.
.
On Canada Visa Refusals…
.
A member of the association of Nigerian professors in Canada opined that these issues linger because of the kind of representatives we have back home.
.
While there is over 90% acceptance for students from China, Japan, etc.
.
It’s about 11% acceptance for Nigerian applicants even when Nigerians are among the most qualified.
Maybe because China and Japan have more economic benefits for Canada and a few sanctions from the leaders could alter a lot in Canada’s business ecosystem.
.
This to me still feels like;
Fix your nation, boost your economy so as to have something tangible to offer the world, and then they’ll take you seriously.
.
Back to the story…
This doesn’t affect just Nigerians only. African applicants usually get stereotyped like this because of some reason.
So when I said “Develop Africa and shut it off from the world” I was actually right.
.
On USA visa refusals…
.
It was revealed that the US rejects visas based on the fact that there are many Nigerians currently overstaying their visas in the US
.
In another opinion, your visa application might be rejected even if you’re married, have a son, and are fully qualified!
.
Reason => you’re seen as a quick link to bring more people to the US. And taking you out of the US could mean putting a stop to the progressive life of those depending on what you send home monthly (Most Nigerians send as much as 75% of their paychecks to Nigeria after paying their rent in the US)
.
I read a similar post on how corruption is making US consular office refuse visa applications from Nigerians based on different fraudulent practices engaged by the travel agents.
.
It was even mentioned a particular section in Abuja where forgery is the order of the day.
In the same epub, I read how easy it was for travel agents in Abuja to manipulate even the signature of the president, business registration documents, house ownership documents, etc.
.
I was also shocked to learn the consular officers across the nation wonder how Nigerian travel agents are able to book appointments when the appointment schedule system is offline.
.
How Nigerians are paying over NGN 1.5m for an American visa that shouldn’t cost more than NGN75k
Now the effect is that
.
Migration is part of human nature. Is staying back home the solution to this problem for Nigerians?
.
Until the Nigerian government fixes Nigeria, the citizens will continue to suffer neglect in foreign frontiers.
.
Building our country Nigeria is the best solution but how do we go about that when corruption has eaten deep into a lot of people’s bones.
