“I also note the progress made by Nigeria towards the removal of the visa restrictions as two out of the six areas of concern raised by the United States had been fully addressed, two are substantially satisfied while some progress is being made on the remaining two.

“I am delighted that this progress, especially the uploading of lost and stolen passport and travel documents has been acknowledged by the United States government.”

KanyiDaily recalled on February 1, 2020, the US government had imposed visa restrictions on Nigerians and citizens of three other countries in a bid to prevent permanent residence in America. However, the immigrants could still apply for other visa categories such as business, tourism, and student travel.
