bta

jag har kontakt med en americansk man som hade sin dotter i nigeria har reste för att hämta henne men när de skulle beställa biljetter så fick de en uppmaning att betala för immigration han har bara kommit dit för att hämta sin dotter och bara vart där i några dagar.

De sitter nu fast där om de inte betalar 2050 dollar plus sina biljetter.

Det hör till saken att de ska resa till mig i sverige.

är det verkligen sant att de måste betala dessa pengar för att kunna lämna landet eller är det bluff

Sorry I dont understand either, but guessing...

Why would an american, need to show bta, to leave nigeria? It is usually the receiving country that requires proof of funds so that you dont overstay or try to work illegally.

Anyway there is no bta when exiting nigeria.

Just google bta and you will see many scams.

Also read www.romancescams.org

If you are aksed to pay bta, most likely you have already sent funds for airfare, funds to help out with some problems..etc

The next part of the scam will be your lover gets into an accident on the way to the airport and a doctor calls you for money to perform surgery.

Hi just google translated your post.

So the people who should be asking for proof of funds should be nowegien immigration and not nigerian. Also norwegien immigration would probably ask an african to show proof that they have money to stay in norway. This question will not be asked to an american.

Sorry but you are being scammed. Do not send money.

I've never been to Africa, but I do not know where else I can ask my question.

Is it true that they charge a BTA ( Basic Travel Allowance) if you want to leave from Nigeria again?

My boyfriend is greek and wants to fly from Nigeria to Germany.

He has a valid passport and a visa.

But they now require a BTA of 3000 euro from him.

Is this normal?

Please send me a quick reply

Thank you very much

First, ask yourself, what bta is for? To prove a person has the means to support himself in the country he is visiting, and so is a genuine visitor, and not someone who will overstay and work illegally?

Why would a person from the EU, going to another country in the EU, need that?

In any case, there is no such thing as bta. Its something scammers came up to scam you.

Hi Maic,

DoYouHaveAnyUpdated information about BTA?

my friend got her visa into the US and she said she's afraid about BtA in the airport. a lot of people in Nigeria have been telling her that she needs $2000 for BTa. to show the officers in the airport.
