According to Nigerians in Diaspora Commission on Twitter, the younger man was at the embassy at 2 pm to acquire his passport. He turned into an instructed passport series that ended by 1 pm. He but insisted on collecting his passport and become advised to present his collection slip. Apkovweta was not able to supply it, and he left disillusioned.

Meanwhile, Legit. Ng formerly reported that the US Embassy in Nigeria has reacted to claims that it enjoys denying visas to intending travelers. The embassy has stated that contrary to rumored speculations, it does no longer revel in denying visas to candidates. Several years ago, I traveled to Cote d’Ivoire with my spouse, two sisters, and a brother in regulation. Tickets purchased, passports in hand, we boarded the plane in Chicago for the long flight to Abidjan through Zurich. The efficient agent on the airline ticket counter checked our flight tickets and passports and accredited us to board the flight. Excited we had been and looking forward to the long flight remote places. Why were we going to Abidjan?
My son and his spouse have been missionaries in Cote d’Ivoire. We seemed forward to touring and gaining knowledge of their culture and work. We arrived in Zurich, spend a couple of hours lounging across the airport, stretching our legs and watching for the following part of our flight to Abidjan. Again, the agent on the counter checked our boarding passes, our passports and permitted us to board the plane, now an instantaneous flight to Abidjan.
No one instructed us approximately the marvel we would come upon at the Abidjan airport. First of all, this is a French talking u. S. A. A language none folks should understand nor speak. Secondly, immigration asked us for our Passports and Visas! Visas! What visas! No one counseled we wished a visa to go into the united states of America of Cote d’Ivoire. Not the journey agent nor the airline dealers. Now what?
My spouse gave a duplicate of my business card to a security agent who went to locate our son, waiting for the outdoor of customs. Tom was brought in to help us and redeem our scenario as he may want to talk their language – French. Two hours and $one hundred sixty later, we were given a 3-day bypass – even though we’d be within the united states of America for three weeks!
A couple of years in the past, my spouse and I have been in Denver, Colorado, for a convention. Just as have been packing our car to depart and drive again to Indiana, my sister called from Canada. “Dad is failing fast; we want you to come to Canada.” An hour later, she was known once more to mention that Dad had gone to be with Jesus.
We repacked and drove to Canada. My wife is a USA citizen, and I am Canadian. However, now not looking forward to Canada on this experience; we did not have passports.
I did have a picture replica of my Canadian passport, and my spouse had a duplicate of her USA passport. Not the real component. We arrived on the Canadian border with only these image copies (always in my car) and a telegram from my sister, an affiliate announcing that Dad’s funeral might be in two days; please come now. The Canadian customs desired are REAL Passport and my REAL USA green card. Well, after a time of negotiating and pleading – we had been permitted to go into Canada.
