The U.S. Consulate has announced fixed dates to attend to students needing visas for studies in the United States.

Naija News reports that this was made known in a statement by the US Mission on Friday.

According to the Consulate, students applying for new visas and those renewing their visas would be attended to on specific dates between November 2021 and January 2022.

The statement reads: “Starting November 24, the U.S. Mission once again will be expanding operations to better serve the student population of Nigeria. This approach will be two-fold: a special procedure for students who need to renew student visas to continue their course of study, and a series of dedicated interview days for prospective new students.

“You may be eligible for a priority student visa interview slot if you are a prospective student seeking an F1 visa appointment and you have not been refused an F1 visa in the past six months.

“Abuja student surge days will take place on December 8, December 15, and January 12. These surge days will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

“Lagos student surge days will take place on November 24, December 8, and December 15.”

While students in Abuja are required to check www.ustraveldocs.com/ng for instructions, those in Lagos are to book their appointments by emailing their documents to [email protected]

The US embassy stated that students in both locations need to submit completed DS-160, approved I-20, I-901 SEVIS fee receipts, GTBank (MRV) receipt for visa fee, valid passport data page, and, a scanned passport photograph.
