President Donald Trump has imposed a new travel ban restricting Nigerians and nationals of five other countries from moving to the United States of America to live permanently.

In line with the new policy, citizens from Nigeria, Eritrea, Myanmar, and Kyrgyzstan won’t be allowed to apply for visas to immigrate to the U.S.

According to the US government, the policy was designed to tighten security for countries that don’t comply with the U.S. minimum security standards or cooperate to prevent illegal immigration.

Officials said immigrants from the affected countries will face new restrictions in obtaining certain visas to visit the United States.

Although it is not a total travel ban, unlike Trump´s earlier effort that generated outrage around the world for unfairly targeting Muslims, issuance of Green card to nationals of the six countries is restricted.

President Trump signed a proclamation on the restrictions as early on Friday, and the restrictions would go into effect on February 21, 2020.

According to US officials, immigrants who were issued valid visas before that date will still be able to move to the U.S.

Nigeria and the five other countries listed will join a list of seven nations that faced significant travel restrictions under President Trump’s original travel ban which was issued earlier in 2017.
