The U.S. Consulate has stipulated six days to attend to students needing visas for studies in the United States.

A statement by the U.S. Mission noted that students applying for new visas and those renewing their visas would be attended to on specific dates between November 2021 and January 2022.

It 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 LagosStudents@state.gov.

The 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.

For students renewing visas, the statement listed separate requirements.

It reads: “If you are currently studying in the United States, you may be eligible for a special application procedure. To qualify for this procedure, you must be renewing a student visa that is still valid or has expired within the past 24 months and are renewing your visa either to: (a) continue participation in the same major course of study even if at a different institution; or (b) attend the same institution even if in a different major course of study.

Abuja applicants: Go to www.ustraveldocs.com/ng and follow the instructions to complete your visa application. Visit a designated DHL facility and mail the following documents:

A printout of your Confirmation page (printed from www.ustraveldocs.com/ng)

A completed DS-160

Lagos applicants: Bring all of the following to the U.S. Consulate in Lagos at 12:30-1:00pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays, between November 25 and January 5:
