How US embassy denied visa to Nigerian beauty queen while in full queen regalia

Fiona Amuzie won the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria in 2010 and recently told a story of how she was denied visa at the US embassy while wearing a glamourous dress, her sash and her crown.

The second year student of the University of Coventry, UK, recalls
"I think the most embarrassing moment for me happened at the US embassy. As a queen, I went there for the US visa in my full regalia, the dress, the crown, everything. And you won't believe me, they denied me the visa. It was so embarrassing. I later went back after my reign as Fiona Amuzie and this time they gave me."

Going to the embassy with full regalia doesn't automatically assure getting a visa, you don't need to be erudite to know there are other formal factors and requirements, they had their reasons not granting her a visa.

If she has that grey weave on, they ought to deny her a visa. I too would think this woman has to be some mad person.

Hey! Do not blame them, they have seen 'Kings" and "Queen", "Bank Managers", 'Ministers", "Governors" disappear into the American system when given a visitor's visa, so, its hard to tell who is going to return except for maybe only Goodluck Jonathan, and that's because he has a job to do back there.

Also the US law backs that action up:

"Section 214(b) of the U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act creates the legal presumption that every visitor visa applicant is intending to immigrate. In order to be issued a visa, applicants must overcome this presumption. Applicants can overcome this presumption only by demonstrating to the consular officer that they have a residence abroad and compelling professional, financial and social ties to that residence."

We pray that our country will be better someday and they will make it a visa free entry for us.

Anonymous said...

They do all those nonesense because the nigerian govt doesn't care for its pple or should I say they r useless. Go to angola and try such, or arrest and deport an angolan citizen in usa and see what they will to your ambassador. They will not only summon ur ambassador but if he doesn't give a tangible reason, they will deport him immediately. U don't mess with their citizen whether u be america or acirema. Nigerian govt only impressed me once when south african govt deported nigerians last year, they equally arrested their citizens here and deported them immediately which led them SA govt sueing for peace. Things like that happen when a govt is functioning well.

That's exactly why she didn't get the visa. Who was she trying to impress/ convince?. The simple psychology is that she has other motives for going to the U.S which she was trying to hide under her crown. Period.

As far I know that's not a prerequisite to getting a Visa. That was a dumb move. People will forever be foolish in Nigeria. There is a Visa application form that you fill out and whatever information is required from you is what will determine the approval, not by wearing that crown or whatever you may call it
