(Nigeria) parents visiting

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Once my fiance is here can parents visit the US from Nigeria? Like for wedding, birth of grand children? Its so hard to get a visitors visa, so im wondering if these r things they have to miss out on?

Visitors visas are, indeed, so hard to get. Probably even moreso in Nigeria than in most other places, but it's plenty hard in Mongolia as well. If the parents are wealthy, it's likely they can get a visa, but if the interviewer sees some reason to assume they will become illegal overstayers in the U.S., it will be tough.

Perhaps if you try again and again (and pay $240 again and again) you can get them approved if they fail the first time(s), but it's always a longshot, unfortunately.


What would Xenu do?

Money in the bank, real estate, established business in Nigeria, family such as wives, husbands and children. For a Nigerian to get a visitor's visa they have to proof to the Embassy they have something to go back to. Meaning that they are truly "just" visiting the US and will be going back.

Before United moved Terminals at Heathrow they were next to Air Nigeria. All I know was that it always seem packed and the amount of excess luggage was astronomical.

They all had visa's, admittedly the UK is a softer touch.

How does this relate to the OP's question.

You would be suprised at the number of Nigerians that have immigrated else where and they always ake tons of luggage. If word gets out you are travelling people so up with bags stuffed with things hoping you "can take one more " I used to like Delta as they had a hard limit of 2 bags , No way to pay for more. Kept me from showing up with 20 bags.

To the OP every once in a while someone gets lucky , but NO is the most common answer even to Doctors, ministers, lawyers and other well connected people.

Maybe in the future things mite change or maybe not lol i guess we will travel to Nigeria for family gatherings sometimes after my fiancee is able.... Also, does anyone kno if were to have a child here in the states does this make our child eligible for dual citizenship considering 1 parent is a Nigerian?

You born in US even if parents aren't citizens that child is a US citizen.

I know there have been some who have parents come when baby is born and stuff. Just showing those close ties. House, kids left ant home spouse. Hopefully soon it will be easy and we will be like the Southwest Commercial says "You are now free to move about the country".
