U.S Embassy in Nigeria: How to Get an Interview Date

Generally, a citizen of Nigeria who wants to visit the U.S must first get a visa, sometimes a non-immigrant visa for a temporary stay or an immigrant visa for permanent residence. Citizens of qualified countries could possibly be able to travel to the U.S. without a visa through the Visa Waiver Program.

If you do not qualify for the Visa Waiver Program or are planning a trip to study, work, or be involved in an exchange program, you must obtain a non-immigrant visa.

Applicants for U.S. visas are required to come in person for a visa interview at the Embassy in Abuja or the Consulate General in Lagos. You should schedule an appointment for that interview, either online using this website or via the contact phone below.
