Nigerian students currently studying in the United States may now renew their student visa without interview.

A statement by the US Embassy on Thursday read: “If you are currently studying in the United States, you may be eligible to renew your student visa without an interview when you return to Nigeria this summer.

“To qualify for this procedure, you must be physically in Nigeria renewing a student visa that is still valid or has expired within the past 24 months and are renewing your visa either to: (a) continue participation in the same major course of study even if at a different institution; or (b) attend the same institution even if in a different major course of study.”

According to the statement, those applying at the Embassy in Abuja should go to www.ustraveldocs.com/ng and follow instructions to complete their application and visit a designated DHL facility to drop off their application with the following documents: A printout of your Submission letter (printed from www.ustraveldocs.com/ng) a completed DS-160 ; an approved I-20; A receipt for your I-901 SEVIS fee; a GTBank (MRV) receipt for their visa fee; a passport containing the expired student visa (if that passport is expired, a current valid passport is also required); a passport photograph meeting these requirements.

The statement said those applying at the Lagos Consulate should go to www.ustraveldocs.com/ng and follow the instructions to make an interview waiver appointment for a student visa. They must come in person to the U.S. Consulate on the date and time of their appointment with the following documents: A completed DS-160; an approved I-20; a receipt for your I-901 SEVIS fee; a GTBank (MRV) receipt for your visa fee; their passport containing the expired student visa (if that passport is expired, a current valid passport is also required) and a passport photograph meeting these requirements

Applicants who do not meet the above criteria should visit www.ustraveldocs.com/ng to schedule a regular appointment.
