NIGERIA: Thousands Stranded As US Embassy Shuts Stops All Visas For Nigerians Till Further Notice

WASHINGTON DC. The presidency led by President Donald Trump and the legislative arm (congress) have been at loggerheads for nearly two months over Trump’s attempt to build a wall along the Mexican border.

Due to this situation thousands of Nigerians applicants will miss their visa appointments as the United States embassy in Abuja and consulate in Lagos have shutdown indefinitely. This means that persons who have applied for tourist, study, business visas, immigrant visas or any other travel document will have to review and put on hold their plans.

The US embassy in Nigeria said in a Facebook post that the development was caused by the government shutdown in the US.

The statement read, “Due to the current US government shutdown, the American centres located in the embassy, Abuja and Consulate-General, Lagos are unfortunately closed. They will re-open once the US government shutdown is resolved. Sorry for any inconvenience to our valued patrons.”
