With effect from December 3, the United States has withdrawn all visa reciprocity charges for Nigerians.
On Saturday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed this.
A statement from the ministry confirmed that the development follows the Nigerian government’s decision to remove “excess visa application, processing and biometric fees for United States citizens applying for Nigerian visas”.
The reciprocity fee was imposed by the Donald Trump administration in 2019 and was between $80 to $303 depending on the type of visa.
The fee was charged alongside the mandatory visa application fees for only applicants who are issued visas.
