U.S. Introduces No-interview student visa renewals for Nigerians


Nigerians currently studying in the United States on F1 or academic J1 visas may be eligible to renew their student visas without an interview when they return to Nigeria over the winter break, the U.S. Consulate General in Nigeria has said.

This was disclosed in a statement issued by the Press Office, Public Affairs Section of the U.S. Consulate General on Wednesday, titled “No-Interview Student Visa Renewals Available Now”.

U.S. Consulate in Nigeria stated that “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 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.”
