Donald Trump, president of the United States of America, may sign an executive order expanding visa restrictions to seven countries including Nigeria. The affected countries may be Belarus, Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Myanmar, Nigeria, Sudan and Tanzania.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the Trump administration might not place full visa bans on these countries as the restriction may be limited to certain types of visas like the business or visitor visa popularly referred to as B1/B2 visa type.

Trump is expected to announce the expanded travel restrictions on Monday, which would also mark the third-year anniversary of the first travel ban. However, the list is not final. The first travel ban issued by the Trump administration affected seven countries with a Muslim majority.

The US government had said the travel restriction is necessary to prevent potential acts of terrorism because countries on the list do not adequately screen travelers.
