According to a statement on Monday, Nigerian tourists visa applicant are now eligible for five years (60 months) visa as against two years (2years) under the previous visa regime.
The new regime, according to the statement, takes effect from Wednesday 1st March, 2023.
This follows Nigeria’s recent policy of visa reciprocity with the US.
The statement reads: “Effective March 1, 2023, the U.S. Mission will increase visitor visa validity from 24 months to 60 months for Nigerians who want to enter the United States temporarily for business and/or tourism.
The visa validity extension allows Nigerians to use the visa for 60 months to make short trips to the United States for tourism or business purposes before having to renew their visa.”
