The U.S. Mission in Nigeria will prioritize student visa applicants and ensure Nigerian students resuming this Fall get visa interview appointments well in advance of their programme start date.
U.S. Mission Country Consular Coordinator, Susan Tuller, announced yesterday that the Embassy in Abuja and Consulate General in Lagos will make every effort to help student visa applicants in a timely trend while preserving personnel and prospects safe.
“As we proceed to prioritize the well being and security of our workers and clients, processing pupil visas stay an excessive priority for the U.S. Mission in Nigeria,” Tuller stated.
“We’ll increase the variety of pupil visa appointments in May and June to ensure that we can offer appointments to as many college students as possible. If your U.S. studies are scheduled to start this Fall, we encourage you to schedule your appointment as rapidly as possible.”
Tuller explained that all pupil visa appointments must be booked through the U.S. Travel Docs website at www.ustraveldocs.com/ng/. She warned candidates against the use of third-party services, together with touts, and fixers who broker visa appointments.
Nigeria sends extra students to American schools and universities than some other nation in Africa and is the eleventh largest supplier worldwide of international students to America. In the academic year 2019-2020, a record-breaking number of practically 14,000 Nigerians pursued graduate and undergraduate degrees in the USA.
