The United States has increased the cost of visa application for Nigerians. The US Consulate announced this in a statement issued in Abuja.
The statement explained that it is reciprocating the extra visa fee the Nigerian government charges American citizens.
According to the statement, Nigerians will be required to pay a fee called visa issuance fee’ or reciprocity fee, for all applications for non-immigrant visas.
The fees, however, are non-refundable, and their amounts vary based on visa classification. The reciprocity fee will be required for all Nigerian citizens worldwide, regardless of where they are applying for a non-immigrant visa to the United States.
