President of the United States of America, Donald Trump is set to introduce new rules designed which is meant to reduce countries whose citizens overstay their visitor visas as part of a broader push for new ways to curb immigration.
This was confirmed by the Wall Street journal, he said,“The effort would target nationals of countries with high overstay rates of such visas, which include the African nations of Nigeria, Chad, Eritrea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, according to Department of Homeland Security data.”
As part of the proposed measure being discussed by senior White House officials, visas could become harder to get for applicants from countries with high rates of overstaying visas and, when issued, the visa validity periods could also become shorter. In the long-term, such countries could also face outright bans. WSJ also reports that the White House is looking to tighten rules around student and investor visas.
