The U.S. Mission to Nigeria on Tuesday announced a new visa renewal process for applicants, tagged Expanded DHL Drop Box Visa programme.

The mission in a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, in Lagos said that the new visa renewal system would commence on June 2.

"The U.S. Mission to Nigeria is pleased to announce the expanded DHL Drop Box Visa Renewal Programme on June 2, 2014.

"This programme allows certain visa applicants who have previously been issued U.S. visas to renew their visas without attending an interview.

"The programme now covers B1/B2 visas that have expired not more than two years prior to re-issuance and F, L and H visas that have expired not more than one year prior to re-issuance," it said.

The statement advised applicants to visit the U.S. Embassy in Nigeria's Website for information on the needed criteria for renewals.

It, however, said that applicants' participation in the programme was not a guarantee for visa issuance.
