“Drop Box” Visa processing not available in Nigeria – US Mission

The United States Mission in Nigeria, Friday, said the “Drop Box” Visa processing option was not available in Nigeria.

The Drop Box visa processing option means that one can get a US visa stamp without any personal interview by a US visa officer but one would need to submit their documents to the VFS location assigned by the US embassy.

The U.S Mission in a statement said that despite recent media reports, the non-immigrant visa interview waiver process, popularly known as the “Drop Box,” has been discontinued in Nigeria since 2018.

The Mission said the State Department continually evaluates each country’s eligibility based on factors including overstay rates and visa-related fraud, even as it reaffirmed it’s commitment to promoting legitimate travel to the United States.

In light of this, all applicants who wish to apply for a visa must kindly appear for an interview,  just as those who wish to learn more about the non-immigrant visa application process can visit  https://www.ustraveldocs.com/ng/ng-gen-faq.asp.
