Yesterday the US Embassy trended on social media after they increased the visa fee Nigerians will pay at visa application. This increment means Nigerians will now pay over N90,000.00 in non-refundable fee.

The increase as explained the communique was needed since Americans pay higher for a visa to Nigeria.

Responding, the Federal Government has approved the reduction of visa charges payable by US citizens in line with the reciprocity policy, a statement from Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola says.
