Consul General of the US embassy, William Laidlaw, has expressed that contrary to popular opinion, US visa application processes are not as stringent as people think.
Speaking with Us, he stated that efforts are being made to improve visa processes better for Nigerians by decentralizing the process.

He also revealed that one of the most common reasons why Nigerians are refused visa, is because of failure to show evidence of social and economic ties.

Laidlaw stated:
To really qualify for a visit to the US, you have to show you have social and economic ties sufficient to meet the immigration terms we have in our laws.
To have those social and economic ties usually means somebody who has developed a career, developed a household and has done something to develop himself within Nigeria…
If you can establish your social and economic ties and we understand who you are in Nigerian context, that allows us to make an evaluation judgment; It’s very hard for very young people, I’m sorry, but that’s the way the law is written,”
he said.

He also noted that at least 7,000 Nigerians are currently attending school in the United States, and that 66 percent of tourist visa applications were approved in 2014.
Do you think is the fact or other way round ?what is your thought On This ?, please feel free to say your mind, It's a Free World!!

Instead from today let us say and believe that Nigerians are nice people, with integrity, honesty and dedication, if we keep saying this, within few generations the negative way of thinking will reduce drastically, Nigerians are transparent, Nigerians think about the future, Nigerians are leading the world, Nigerians are excellent, Nigerians are shining stars, tell everybody that, and see people change.

If you believe in negativity, and you say it, then you are encouraging its power and and it will overtake everyone.

What I can say today is that Nigerians make positive changes where ever they go, they are highly dignified, they are very valuable, they have something special in them, they are talented, and their wisdom will change the world for the better, they are technologically advanced, they are rich, and they are kind and caring.

And who says the middle man in Nigeria, will remain poor, when no condition is permanent, I see Nigerians getting richer, one day the middle man in Nigeria, will be very rich and will be respected everywhere, and in that day, there will be few poor people in this country, on that day people will know that  everyone is a gift and have something valuable to contribute to society, on that day politicians will not have power over people and people will not be desperate anymore, they will do what is productive and will live meaningful lives in this country.
