The European Union has said that it may consider imposing visa restrictions on Nigeria, if it fails to return illegal nationals living in countries under the EU.

It said that it could make Visa processing a tougher process if Nigeria failed to curb the trend of illegal migration.

If a visa restriction is placed on Nigeria by the EU, it wouldn’t be the first time the country would be hit with such in 2020.

The United States of America had issued a restriction preventing Nigerians, as well as nationals of five other countries, from emigrating to the US.

The US claimed that Nigeria does not comply with its minimum security standards or cooperate to prevent illegal immigration.

It considered Nigeria as presenting a high risk of terrorist travel to the US.
