Recalling my experience yesterday at the Morrocan border control. I was unfortunately sent to a line that was managed by a very slow officer. He seemed to spend so much time on everyone. When it got to my turn, I was unprepared for the drama. The guy went through all my visas- I was hopeful this would convince him that I was a frequent traveller. That didn't work. He used his fingers to feel my schengen visa- I was on my way to Frankfurt. That wasn't enough. So he took my passport without a word, to his other colleagues. 3 of them hunched over my passport looking through it with a magnifying glass or something. After several minutes, they all returned. I told them the visa was issued by the German government- my 3rd with them. All my entries to Europe has been from Germany including this trip where my passport was stamped at Frankfurt airport. I exited Europe from Spain into Morroco and now I'm returning back to Frankfurt. They later gave a poor apology after they saw my work ID by explaining that they needed to verify. I understand I say in my mind. I'm African and I'm Nigerian so it must be that I'm running to a better life in Europe. Hiss.
After I calmed down though, I kinda understood why- most Moroccan residents will tell you that their immigration is no joke. Their police is corrupt but their immigration is heavy and serious as most Africans and likes try to cross into Europe from Morocco. But that didn't excuse my overzealous officer. #travellingwhileblack #africans #visarequired #immigration #travellingwhileafrican #nigerianpassport #elizabeth travels #morocco #bordercontrol #europe #tourist #travelproblems #onenigeriangirl
