The U.S. Mission to Nigeria disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday
explaining that the suspension would take effect immediately at the
close of business.
The mission, however, gave assurance that those who have already

U.S. Embassy in Abuja and the Consulate General in Lagos would not be
affected while the processing of diplomatic and official (A, G, and NATO
class) visa applications was not also affected.

promote legitimate travel and will continue to facilitate applications
of established travelers to the best of its ability.
