Student Visa Surge 2021 Commences November 24th In Lagos And Abuja

The Lagos and Abuja Student Visa Surge 2021 kick-off November 24th for new and returning students who will have a chance to qualify for special application procedures.

If you can recall, in our previous article on US Student Visa Operations And Deadline For Nigerians, were we stated that the United States will expand operations in Nigeria from November 24, 2021, to better serve the student population of Nigeria.

The current approach will be two-fold – students who need to renew student visas to continue their course of study, and a series of dedicated interview days for prospective new students.
