Your sister does not need a basic travel allowance. However she does need a visa. Since she is traveling on an American passport, she can obtain a short visa (7 or 30 days) on arrival, if she does not yet have a visa. For more information go to this web site.

does someone traveling from Nigeria to Seattle Wash. have to have a BTA and how much is it?

When one travels to the United States on a visa, they obviously clear Passport Control and Customs. A Passport Control officer has the right to inquire and verify that someone is either in possession of enough funds to pay for their stay in the US, or that accommodations for that person have been provided by a third party. There is hardly a set requirement as far as finances are concerned, and the decision whether someone does indeed possess enough funds is left solely to the discretion of the Passport Control officer.

you are being scamed. there is no such fee and they are trying to get as much money out of you as possible. Don't fall for this or else you will be out of all your cash savings. I have been down this road before.  ask them for a recent photo with holding a newspaper of todays date. For a test and i promise you that they will not do this. Avoid you from seeing this. This is the biggest scam going. Please just give up what you are looking for and find someone else. If you want to chat more, novavans@aol.com   Lew

i got question for ya if my girlfriend is from state she came to nigera to work there and after she finish her job there and she want to come back to state they charge her for Basic Traveling allowance does she have to require the paper to let them know she from the state she got passport and visa, they don't let her board the plane if she have them.

There is no such thing as a Basic Traveling Allowance. Read what tumbleweed said right above your question. Look up Basic Traveling Allowance on Google and you will see that it is a scam. Believe me.
