It is sad and discouraging that President Donald Trump has just placed a travel ban on Nigeria-the biggest economy in Africa and the largest black nation in the world.
What this means for Nigerians is that they can still travel to the land of the free but will be prevented from obtaining certain kinds of visas.
Henceforth, the US would suspend the issuance of visas that can lead to permanent residency for Nigerians.
Well, the US can keep their Visa, there are still thousands of countries Nigerians can freely visit as long as they have the legal documents to stay. Here are some of them.
Canada is now one of the popular destinations for Nigerians who want to relocate. This is because of the many opportunities in the country. You can apply for a study visa as well as permanent residency. As long as you have your money for processing your documents, you are good to go.
This list will never be complete without Dubai. The Middle Eastern country is not just a tourist destination but also a place to actually call home. They have made their visa application process easy and even if you want to go to work there for a few months and you have proof that you got a job, you would be granted an entry visa.
The United Kingdom
Although the United Kingdom is battling Brexit and the visa process will become more cumbersome, they won’t ban Nigeria. In fact, this is the time to take advantage of getting your papers and preparing to visit the UK as they would be needing more skilled hands to drive the economy since they would no longer be free entry and exit for Europeans.
Australia may be at the extreme part of the world and it may take significant hours to arrive, it’s still a place to visit and start your life. There are lots of jobs for the skilled and unskilled.
Singapore is a global financial centre with a tropical climate and multicultural population. It has one of the viable economies in Asia and their visa rules are a bit flexible.
