US Embassy & Consulate in Nigeria Suspends Interview Waiver “Drop Box” Program
It made this known on the official US Visa Application platform.
The Interview Waiver Program (IWP), also called the Visa Interview Waiver Program, is a program managed by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs under which, under some circumstances, interview requirements can be waived for some nonimmigrant visa applicants.
This means that if travel is necessary and your visa needs to be renewed, you should plan ahead to accommodate for an in-person interview and the time needed for the interview.
