Value-for-money or Nothing-for-money?
I am in 40s and one of a shareholder and managing director of a company. Because of the desire I have to visit USA, I went twice to the USA Consular in Ethiopia to get entrance VISA. To get VISA, about USD 100 is paid per visit of the Consular. Despite my visit of the Consular twice to get VISA, the value delivered to me for my money was rejection of entry VISA.
Imagine, I presented them all my personal property evidences and my family as well. I presented them my company’s account balance (as owner) the amount of which is big, title deed of my personal car and residential house, marriage certificate and birth certificate of my three children, etc. So, how do these VISA issuers think that I would not return back leaving my property and family which I can never generate that much property and establish family in the USA? I have never faced such problem when I asked entrance VISA to Malaysia, UAE, Uganda, China and UK.
My conclusion with regard to the USA Consular in Ethiopia is that they are simply collecting money without providing value. If not, they could tell the VISA requester not to visit the Consular again once rejected. But the USA Consular does not care whether the VISA requester visits them hundred times with that USD 100 fee paid for each visit. I could afford this cost but how can other poor Ethiopians seeking to visit their relatives in USA afford it? They are really exploited. Hope Barack Obama will consider this when he comes to his immigration policy issue!
