Experts predict Canada can get more applications from citizens of the countries on which the Trump administration applied new visa restrictions. Citizens of the six countries were temporarily blacklisted for immigration and travel visas. These countries are Nigeria, Myanmar, Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Sudan and Tanzania. Naturally, citizens from these states may turn their interest to Canada. In the past, when the US applied restrictions to Iran and Haiti, Canada faced an increase in applications from their citizens. According to Robert Falconer, a prominent immigration policy researcher, this could result in a bigger number of asylum seekers. At the same time, Canada may benefit from Nigeria’s booming middle class.
