Sierra Leone Agrees to Accept 27 Citizens Deported from US

Sierra Leone Agrees to Accept 27 Citizens Deported from US”

The United States will stop issuing certain visas to Eritrean nationals and Guinean officials as of Wednesday, the embassies in those countries announced Tuesday.

The move comes as President Donald Trump's administration places visa restrictions on four African and Asian nations that have refused to accept citizens deported from the U.S.

"Cambodia still cooperates with the USA", he said. The Department of Homeland Security said it had recommended the State Department take action against four nations out of a dozen it considers recalcitrant.

The visa sanctions which will go into effect on Wednesday vary in severity with respect to each country with Eritrea facing the harshest sanctions. In Guinea, the United States will no longer issue a range of tourist, business and student visas to government officials and their immediate family members who apply from inside the country, another cable said. Only Foreign Ministry employees at or above the rank of director general, and their families, who apply inside the country will be barred from getting some visas for personal travel, a third cable said. For Sierra Leone, this restriction applies to the issuance of B visas (temporary visitors for business or pleasure) to Ministry of Foreign Affairs officials and immigration officials.

USA officials first discussed the visa restrictions last month. Also, the new policy will not affect visas already granted.

Sierra Leone and Cambodia, which are also likely to be impacted by the visa restrictions, have not made any statement though there are no statements the on websites of the United States embassies in those countries as of Tuesday evening. The Department of State received notification under Section 243 (d) of the Immigration and Nationality Act from the Department of Homeland Security for Eritrea, Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Cambodia.

Other countries listed as being recalcitrant in accepting deportees from the US include China, Cuba, Vietnam, Laos, Iran, Burma, Morocco and South Sudan.
