Hello,

I am a different expert. There is no necessity for a medical examination to leave Nigeria and there is absolutely no requirement for a medical examination for a US citizen to return home.

I am sorry to have to say this, but this is a tried and true way that internet romance scammers have of stealing your money. They find some emergency excuse that keeps them from boarding the plane and coming to the US, and once you pay for that there will be another.

If you married your wife in a proxy ceremony online or via the phone, while you were still in the States, that's part of the scam and it's done to make you feel obligated to pay for her support. In fact, the marriage would not be recognized over here. If you were with her in Nigeria and married face-to-face in a civil or religious ceremony, I apologize for my presumption.

You suspect something as well, or you wouldn't be posting a question here. If you actually dated her on real-time when she was in the US, it's possible that you are communicating with some impostor who hacked her account and who is using you to try to steal your money. There's no way that I can know for sure.

It is, of course, always possible that due to some local outbreak KLM is requiring a medical exam. There is, however, no word of that online. The way to be sure would be to call and speak to someone at KLM and they can tell you if such regulations exist. What I can tell you, however, is that there's no such requirement in general to leave Nigeria or to come home to America.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
