The United States embassy in Nigeria has said that its visa officers do not enjoy denying Nigerians visa.
In a Facebook post on Monday, April 15, 2019, the embassy said this is contrary to the opinion held by most Nigerians.
It said there are some questions often misunderstood by applicants which earn them a rejection.
According to the embassy, the first step to securing a US visa is to complete the DS 160 form correctly.
The post read:
“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 misunderstood questions on the DS 160 and help you improve your next application”.
According to the embassy, its officers will be on a Facebook Live session at 2pm on Wednesday, April 18, 2019 to answer visa questions and discuss common mistakes seen on the DS 160.
However, some rejected applicants disagreed with the position of the embassy as they recounted their unpleasant experiences.
