The US executes a new strategy to make Nigerians pay more for visa

The US (United States) Embassy in Nigeria has reported that it will currently charge Nigerians an extra expense for the issuance of its visa.

As indicated by an announcement discharged on Tuesday, August 27, 2019, the installment of the visa issuance charge, or correspondence expense, will produce results worldwide on August 29.

The correspondence expense will be required for every Nigerian native around the world, paying little respect to where they are applying for a non-outsider visa to the U.S.


Just Nigerians whose applications for non-migrant visas in B, F, H1B, I, L, and R visa orders have been allowed will be required to pay the extra expense over the charge paid to get a visa meet.

The correspondence charges to be paid for each visa order is as per the following: B1 ($110), B2 ($110), B1/B2 ($110), F1 ($110), F2 ($110), H1B ($180), H4 ($180), I ($210), L1 ($303), L2 ($303), R1 ($80) and R2 ($80).

Nigerians whose visa applications are denied won’t be required to pay the charge.

“Both correspondence and MRV expenses are non-refundable, and their sums change dependent on visa arrangement. The correspondence expense is required for each visa that is issued, which means the two grown-ups and minors whose visa applications are endorsed will be charged the correspondence charge,” the international safe haven said.

In contrast to the underlying expense to get a meeting, the correspondence charge must be paid at the U.S. International safe haven or the U.S. Office General, and not at banks.

Clarifying the purpose behind the new expense, the international safe haven said U.S. natives right now acquire Nigerian visas at a greater expense contrasted with Nigerians getting a visa to the U.S.

Consequently, the new correspondence expense for Nigerian residents is intended to take out that cost distinction.

“U.S. law requires U.S. visa expenses and legitimacy periods to be founded on the treatment stood to U.S. residents by outside governments, to the extent that conceivable.

“Visa issuance expenses are executed under the standard of correspondence: when a remote government forces extra visa charges on U.S. natives, the United States will force proportional charges on residents of that nation for comparable sorts of visas.

“Nationals of various nations worldwide are right now required to pay this sort of charge after their nonimmigrant visa application is endorsed,” the consulate said.

The international safe haven said the Nigerian government neglected to notice its requests for a year and a half to change the expenses charged to U.S. natives for certain visa classifications.

In May, the consulate inconclusively suspended the visa talk with the waiver for Nigerians restoring visas in the nation.

Prior to the suspension, Nigerian holders of US visa types B1/B2, F, H, and L could restore their visas online by preparing it through DHL utilizing one of a few dropbox areas crosswise over Nigeria, without going to physical
