Visa Appointment Instructions
 

To schedule an appointment, follow the instructions below. Please note that if you have been refused a business or tourist visa, you are not allowed to schedule an appointment for 90 days. If you have been refused a student visa, you are not allowed to schedule an appointment for 7 days. Each applicant will need to schedule a separate appointment, and each applicant will need a separate passport unless your minor child is endorsed in your passport.

  1. At a branch of GTBank, pay the Machine Readable Visa (MRV) fee that applies to your intended visa category.
  2. Complete a DS160 online visa application at http://ceac.state.gov/GENNIV
  3. Go to the CGI visa appointment website for the U.S. Mission to Nigeria at www.ustraveldocs.com/ng  (Internet Explorer or Mozilla browser required)
  4. Click on the green "Apply Now" button on the upper right side of the screen.  There you will find detailed instructions on how to schedule, reschedule or cancel an appointment. On the website itself, there is also additional information about how to pay application fees and select the appropriate visa categories.
  5. Use the above website to request an appointment in either Abuja or Lagos.  You will be asked to indicate where you would like to apply and where you would like to pick up your travel documents should you qualify for a visa (Note: these locations must match.)
  6. Choose an appointment date and time that is available, and fill out the required information.  Enter your Surname and all your Given Names exactly as they appear in your passport.  Enter your passport number exactly as it appears in your passport, with no extra spaces.  Provide an accurate e-mail address and telephone number (so Embassy or Consulate staff can reach you in case of emergency). PLEASE NOTE:  You will only be allowed to attend your interview with the passport bearing the number entered here AND if your name exactly matches the name in your passport.  You may only schedule one appointment per passport number.
