’90 Day Fiance’: Angela & Lisa Out of Luck – Nigeria Visa Ban Blocks Their Men?

90 Day Fiance‘s Angela Deem and Lisa Hamme face disappointment unless something changes fast at US Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS). The latest info says that Usman Umar and Michael Ilesanmi may be stuck in Nigeria for a long time unless they find a loophole.

90 Day Fiance: Lisa Hamme Married Usman Umar Last Year – Still Too Late?

On this season of Before the 90 Days, fans just saw Lisa Hamme bully Usman into proposing to her. It was a romantic marriage proposal, done a scant four feet from the toilet. Soon on the 90 Day Fiance prequel show, we’ll see Usman wed Lisa. However, this filmed a while back.

In fact, Lisa married Usman late last Summer – see the info here. Now, the Nigerian resident visa ban likely shuts the door on BGL bringing SojaBoy to the US to live as her husband. There was already a travel ban in place since 2017 before her 90 Day Fiance wedding.

Then, in January 2020, the ban broadened, affecting all visas in process. So, even if Lisa Hamme rushed home from Nigeria and applied for the visa, it would have stalled early this year. And Lisa Hamme’s not the only 90 Day Fiance bride hit hard by the ban.

Angela Deem’s Wedding to Michael Ilesnami Days Before Nigerian Ban Tightened

As for Angela Deem, whom fans know from 90 Day Fiance and Before the 90 Days, she already had visa issues. You may recall from her last season of the main franchise that Michael’s K-1 was pre-denied. Remember, they got a letter saying it likely would be refused if they continued.

That prompted Angela to hop a plane to marry Michael in Nigeria. That’s despite Angela Deem hoping for her mother to see her marry her 90 Day Fiance down in Georgia. Michael married Angela in late January, then the travel ban clamped down, and then her mother passed away.

Typically, it’s easier to get a spousal visa than a K-1 90 Day Fiance visa. That’s what Angela Deem hoped for her and Michael. But with USCIS blocking all permanent immigration visas for Nigerians, Angela likely won’t get her honey to the US anytime soon.

Are There Any Loopholes for These 90 Day Fiance Wives to Bring Their Hubbies to the US

Lisa Hamme and Angela Deem are not alone in this immigration dilemma. This Nigerian visa ban separates thousands of families. And unless the avenues reopen for permanent US residency visas, neither Angela’s husband nor Lisa’s will be able to move to the US with them.

But, is there a loophole? Maybe. One possibility is for Michael and Usman to request visitor visas to come to the US as tourists rather than as 90 Day Fiance husbands. Then, once in the US, Angela and her counterpart Lisa can request a change of status on the visa.

Aside from that, it doesn’t look good for Angela Deem or Lisa Hamme to get their hubbies in their waiting arms in America. So, with this info, what will we see from Angela on the new season of Happily Ever After starting soon? It will chronicle her trip to Nigeria and their wedding there.

As for Lisa Hamme, she’ll be on the spinoff 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days Strikes Back where cast members get to slap back on their online haters. As for Michael and fellow Nigerian Usman, the latest USCIS ban means their American dreams are on hold – perhaps indefinitely.
