A foreign citizen seeking to enter the United States must first obtain a U.S. visa, which is placed in the traveler’s passport, a travel document issued by the traveler’s home country.
The visitor visa is for people who are visiting the United States for a short period of time for business, pleasure, or medical treatment. The visitor’s visa is typically issued to travelers who are consulting with business associates, attending scientific, educational, professional, or business conventions/conferences, settling an estate, or negotiating contracts.
Nigerian citizens must pay a visa issuance fee, also known as a reciprocity fee, for all approved nonimmigrant visa applications. The reciprocity fee is in addition to the nonimmigrant visa application fee, which is paid by all applicants at the time of application, and must be paid in cash at the US Embassy or Consulate General.
The interview waiver “Drop Box” application process at the US Embassy and Consulate in Nigeria has been suspended as of May 14, 2019.
You will be required to schedule an appointment with the US embassy. Prior to your interview, we will prepare you for what to expect and provide you with a list of documents you will need to bring with you on the day of the interview.
Until further notice, all applicants must schedule regular appointments.
