The United States Government has announced the removal of all visa reciprocity fees for Nigerian citizens.
The US Mission in Nigeria made this known in a statement on Saturday in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
“Effective December 2, 2020, the reciprocity schedule for Nigeria changed to remove all reciprocity fees for the nonimmigrant visa categories listed below. There are no reciprocity fees remaining on any visa class for Nigerian nationals.
“All non-immigrant visa applicants are still required to pay the $160 non-refundable MRV fee at the time of application. Reciprocity fees paid prior to December 3, 2020 are not refundable.
“The removal of these reciprocity fees matches the Nigerian government’s removal of additional fees on U.S. citizens applying for Nigerian visas,” the Statement read.
