The United States Mission in Nigeria will open visa applications for students with effect from November 24.

The Mission said it would be expanding operations to better serve the student population in the country through a special procedure for those who need to renew the student visas to continue their course of study, and a series of dedicated interview days for prospective new students.

The mission in a statement on Friday explained that an individual may be eligible for a priority student visa interview slot if the applicant is a prospective student seeking an F1 visa appointment and if he has not been refused an F1 visa in the past six months.

Interested applicants are expected to submit required documents as soon as possible to take advantage of the limited opportunity.
