The prohibition on dropbox service or interview waiver for individuals renewing visas in Nigeria has been withdrawn by the US embassy in Nigeria.
You could recall that in May 2019, the interview waiver for Nigerian applicants was revoked.Thank you for reading this post, don't forget to subscribe!
After the suspension was lifted, applicants are now expected to apply for a visa renewal in the same classification as their previous non-immigrant visa.
“Right now, this service is only available to applicants renewing a B1/B2, C1/D, F, M or J, H and L visa. Applicants must satisfy all the following criteria for their visa class. If applying as a group or family, all members must fulfill all criteria to qualify for interview waiver.
For B1/B2 or C1/D visa holders: the applicant must possess a full-validity B1/B2 or C1/D visa that expired within the past 24 months or will expire in the next three months.
The applicant must be a citizen or resident of Nigeria. The applicant must not have been refused a visa since the issuance of the previous visa, or had a visa revoked, or have ever required a waiver.
The applicant possesses all issued passports covering the entire period since receiving the previous visa and the passport with the most recent visa.
The applicant has never been arrested or convicted of any crime or offense in the United States, even if the applicant has later received a waiver or pardon.
The applicant has never worked without authorization or remained beyond their permitted time in the United States. C1/D applicants must possess a letter from the employer outlining the scope, duration, and location of the anticipated work.”the embassy says
