US Embassy adopts new visa application scheme

28 May 2014, 19:01Henry Ifeanyi

Lagos - The United State Embassy in Nigeria has announced a new visa renewal process.

The new scheme would allow certain visa applicants who have previously been issued US visas to renew their visas without attending an interview.

The new process, called Expanded DHL Drop Box Visa programme, would become effective from June 2.

“The US Mission to Nigeria is pleased to announce the expanded DHL Drop Box Visa Renewal Programme on June 2, 2014.

This programme allows certain visa applicants who have previously been issued US visas to renew their visas without attending an interview.

The programme now covers B1/B2 visas that have expired not more than two years prior to re-issuance and F, L and H visas that have expired not more than one year prior to re-issuance,” a statement issued by the commission on the new process read.

The statement further advised applicants to visit the US Embassy in Nigeria’s Website for information on the needed criteria for renewals.

It, however, said that applicants’ participation in the programme was not a guarantee for visa issuance.

The statement said that the consulate might request the applicants to attend visa interviews in some cases.
