The US Embassy has stated that it doesn’t enjoy denying Nigerians visa.
A statement reads:
Contrary to popular opinion, visa officers do not enjoy handing anyone the 214b refusal letter.“Proof: Visa Officers will be live on Facebook to talk about some of the commonly misinterpret questions on the DS 160 and help you improve your next application.”
Some Nigerians, however, stormed the page’s comment section to squabble with the embassy’s statement.
A certain Akufai Valentine Jonah remembers how he was denied a visa despite obtaining a scholarship in 2013.
“I had a terrible experience in 2013. I got a scholarship to attend a congress in Denver but I was denied a visa. I was not angry because I was denied a visa. I was angry with the disrespectful manner the consular officer spoke to me.“Imagine giving one that refusal letter and you are told ‘off you go’ without any substantial explanation.
After reading the letter, it states that I don’t have strong ties to my country either through being married, neither do I have a job. Back then I worked with an NGO and it was clearly stated in my application form. I have forgotten the third excuse.
I know people who had zero travel records but were granted US visas. Since that episode, I have never ever applied for a US visa because I don’t have any business there for now.”
Adaobi Emmanuella Njoku wrote, “Contrary to what you just posted, I think and believe they actually do enjoy it because they act like they know it all and still end up giving visas to people without authentic intentions.“I can’t wait for Wednesday to come because I have already arranged my questions.
They will explain to me how it is feasible to deny a person a visa three times with three different rationales at different times when the form was filled exactly the same and for the same motivation: for a medical trip to help save one’s child. I can’t wait for Wednesday.”
