US President Joe Biden has lifted the immigrant visa ban imposed on Nigeria by Donald Trump, his predecessor.

According to the New York Times, Biden reversed the ban on his first day in office and directed the State Department to restart visa processing for individuals from the affected countries.

Bloomberg also reported the action which came through an executive order and would seek a plan to address the people affected.

Trump imposed the ban on immigrant visa issued to those who seek to relocate to the US on Nigeria and six other countries after expanding his controversial immigration policies.
