The US Mission has commenced expansion of its visa services to assist non-immigrant visa applicants in Nigeria who qualify to renew their visa.
It stated that this new application procedure will begin in February at the US Consulate in Lagos.
But it explained that the number of qualified applicants who can apply using the new procedures will be limited at this first phase.
It however stated that the processing may take up to two months.
The US Mission further disclosed that the application procedure will also be extended to the U.S. Embassy in Abuja at a later time.
It said: “Applicants who meet the criteria may apply in Lagos until the service is extended to Abuja.
Please note that only one member of the family unit is required to drop-off the application documents; children are not required to come drop-off in person.
“Processing may take up to two months. Although we anticipate most cases will be processed within a few weeks, once you submit your travel documents, we will be unable to return these to you until your case has been completed.”
