New Trump rule may require some African tourists to pay up to $15,000 in bonds

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The outgoing administration of U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday issued a new temporary rule that could require tourist and business travelers from two dozen countries, most in Africa, to pay a bond of as much as $15,000 to visit the United States.

The U.S. State Department said the temporary final rule, which takes effect Dec. 24 and runs through June 24, targets countries whose nationals have higher rates of overstaying B-2 visas for tourists and B-1 visas for business travelers. The Trump administration said the six-month pilot program aims to test the feasibility of collecting such bonds and will serve as a diplomatic deterrence to overstaying the visas. Read more...

Interesting Reading: Imaginary tribute by a ghost writer to the late Auditor General, Emmanuel Nyenswa lifted from Facebook

I saw a friend. I gave him an opened arm filled with warmed embrace. I was not wrong to have trusted him as a brother. Everything about that fateful night was a conspiracy. I found myself in the hands of my friends, my killers.

They called me out to chill. I was weak and weary. They insisted that I go out. Dreadfully, I wore my pants and got on my car. Was I in search for my death or death was tailing me? Something was actually going wrong but I couldn't figure out. Did I have a thought of accident, yes i had but i conquered it by driving slowly and carefully. Read more...
