United States Removes Visa Fees For Nigerian Citizens

The Federal Government of Nigeria has said that with effect from December 3, 2020 the United States has removed all visa reciprocity fees for Nigerians seeking visas to the US.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs disclosed on Saturday that the development was sequel to the removal of excess visa application, processing and biometric fees for American citizens applying for Nigerian visas.

The Donald Trump administration had in 2019 imposed the reciprocity fee for all approved non-immigrant visa applications by Nigerians.

The fee was charged in addition to visa application fees for only applicants who are issued visas.

The additional reciprocity fees which ranged from $80 to $303 depending on the class of visa, took effect from August 29 last year.
