US suspends Dropbox Process for Visa Indefinitely

The United States Mission in Nigeria has indefinitely suspended the “Dropbox” process of securing visa

 

 

EFFECTIVE at the close of business today, Tuesday, May 14, the United States Mission to Nigeria is indefinitely suspending interview waivers for renewals, otherwise known as the “Dropbox” process.  Visa applications will no longer be accepted by DHL in Nigeria. Those who have already submitted their passports via “Dropbox” to DHL for processing either at the U.S. Embassy in Abuja, or the Consulate General in Lagos, will not be impacted by this change.

All applicants in Nigeria seeking a non-immigrant visa to the United States must apply online, and will be required to appear in-person at the U.S. Embassy in Abuja or U.S. Consulate General in Lagos, to submit their application for review. Applicants must appear at the location they specified when applying for the visa renewal.

Processing of diplomatic and official (A, G, and NATO class) visa applications will continue unchanged.

Mission Nigeria’s processing procedures are regularly reviewed in order to assess our ability to quickly, efficiently, and securely process visa applications.

The United States Mission is taking this step to provide more efficient customer service and promote legitimate travel, and will continue to facilitate applications of established travellers to the best of its ability, a press release from the Embassy which was made available to Realnews today stated.
