The United States Embassy in Nigeria has reacted to the outcry over the rate at which applicants are being denied visa in the country.

 

In separate posts on its Twitter and Facebook handles on Monday, the embassy explained that it consular officers do not gain anything by denying those seeking to travel to the US visa.

 

It, however, appealed to Nigerians to join its visa officers live on Facebook on Wednesday to know why they were denied visa as a result of “commonly misunderstood questions” in the course of their applications.

 

The Twitter post read, “Contrary to popular opinion, Consular Officers do not enjoy refusing anyone a visa. Proof: Join us on Facebook for demonstrations on how to complete the DS 160 correctly.  April 17 | 2:00pm #AskTheConsul.”

 

The explanation by the embassy has however triggered various reactions from visa applicants as most of them criticised the embassy and narrated their experiences when they went for an interview.
