President Donald Trump has introduced a new visa policy to address the high rates of non-immigrant overstay in the United States.

The new policy which is currently under a pilot/testing phase focuses on tourist and business visas.

It requires applicants for the visas from some listed countries to pay a bond which will be up to $15,000 in addition to visa fees which currently range from $160 to $300.

Using the current official exchange rate of N379/1$ by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), $15,000 is N5,685,000 (N5.6 million).

The policy which will be effective from December 2020 to June 2021 will affect 23 countries
