U.S Visa Restrictions Lifted on Chadians

Enterprise Television- U.S Visa Restrictions Lifted on Chadians

The White House in a press release said that the U.S President Donald Trump has removed Chadians from the requirement of enhanced immigrant vetting because the country has demonstrated that it’s no longer  a security threat to U.S. interests.

“Trump signed a proclamation today announcing that the Republic of Chad has improved its identity-management and information sharing practices sufficiently to meet the baseline security standard of the U.S.

“Chad nationals will therefore again be able to receive visas for travel to the U. S.,’’ the White House said.

Trump’s decree states that Chad shares information used in the U.S. screening and selection programs about known or suspected terrorists.

The decree said that “Chad also improved its handling of lost and stolen passports, which helps the United States and other partners prevent fraudulent use of the documents’’.

The departments of State and Homeland Security began in December to restrict the entry of nationals from Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Syria, Somalia, Venezuela and Yemen.

The measure was part of Trump’s executive order on immigration in the State.
