Nigeria may be added to the travel ban list of the United States – Trump
The Trump administration is planning to add Nigeria, along with six other countries to its travel ban list.
President Donald Trump said in an interview with the Wall Street Journal that he was considering adding countries to the travel ban but declined to state which ones.
A senior Trump administration official said that countries that failed to comply with security requirements, including biometrics, information-sharing and counter-terrorism measures, faced the risk of limitations on U.S. immigration.
Other countries to be affected are Belarus, Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Myanmar, Sudan, and Tanzania.
Under the current version of the ban, citizens of Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen, as well as some Venezuelan officials and their relatives are blocked from obtaining a large range of U.S. immigrant and non-immigrant visas.
The list of countries was not final and could yet change, website Politico said.
