The revised US visa forms, which was first proposed in March 2018, require most visa applicants, including tourists, to furnish their social media usernames, previous email addresses and phone numbers as part of the application process
If you are planning to apply for the US visa, you will have to share your internet history. As proposed by the Trump administration, the country now requires most of the US visa applicants to submit their social media details for the past five years, as part of its strategy to improve screening of potential immigrants and visitors.
The revised US visa forms, which was first proposed in March 2018, require most visa applicants, including tourists, to furnish their social media usernames, previous email addresses and phone numbers as part of the application process. However, some diplomats and officials are likely to be exempted from the requirements.
“National security is our top priority when adjudicating visa applications, and every prospective traveller and immigrant to the United States undergoes extensive security screening,” the US-based news agency Associated Press quoted the US State Department as saying this. “We are constantly working to find mechanisms to improve our screening processes to protect U.S. citizens, while supporting legitimate travel to the United States.”
This can only happen in a country that has database.
Recall that in 2015 when my Party, APC came on-board; I offered them an advice of synchronizing our database system.
This was because I didn’t want to destroy the castle which I really assisted to build.
I am offering the same advice in our Next Level.
Do you know that in Nigeria, there’s no correlation between Customs, Immigration, NDLEA, NAFDAC, MDAS, Banks, Private Sectors, Police, Residential Houses and Schools Database systems ???
In UK, before you gain any meaningful employment you must have your NI number (National Insurance) Number.
The NI number is linked to your banks, workplace, residence, car, your family, Immigration, Police.
Similar thing is obtainable in USA, rather it is called Social Security Number.
How can a nation plan for N5000 monthly stipends when you don’t have database? It is an exercise in futility.
