U.S. Announces Expanded Drop Box Visa Renewal ProgramLatest News, News Tuesday, May 27th, 2014
The United States Mission to Nigeria has announced the expanded DHL Drop Box Visa Renewal Program on June 2, 2014. This program allows certain visa applicants who have previously been issued U.S. visas to renew their visas without attending an interview.
The expanded DHL Drop Box Visa Renewal Program now covers B1/B2 visas that have expired no more than two years prior to reissuance and F, L and H visas that have expired no more than one year prior to reissuance.
To find out more about the specific qualification criteria for renewals, applicants should visit the U.S. Embassy in Nigeria website’s Drop Box page at http://nigeria.usembassy.gov/niv_dropbox.html
The U.S. Mission to Nigeria in a statement said the CGI visa appointment website will ask applicants a series of questions reflecting the criteria for the expanded DHL Drop Box Visa Renewal Program.
“Qualifying applicants will be prompted to print a letter confirming their eligibility for the program and instructing them to drop off the letter with their passport, application confirmation sheet, passport photos, visa fee receipt, and appropriate documents to one of the DHL facilities in Abuja or Lagos. The application packets are adjudicated and returned to the applicant’s selected DHL location within 7-10 business days.
“Please note that participation in this program does not guarantee visa issuance.
Additionally, the consulate may request applicants to attend a visa interview in certain cases”, the statement concluded.
