I just spoke with one of the agents. He said just be on the lookout. We Nigerians really need to change. Why would someone go ahead and book for interview waiver appointment when clearly not eligible. We just like to mess up good things!!
You should be on the look out how? when they freeze accounts after few attempts.

I've tried 3 times today (Spaced out over two hours) and I'm getting "You're approaching the maximum number of times" message SMH.
So I guess I have to try 3 times a day everyday, till I get a slot. Fed up

I'm having the same issue. I was wondering if the application can only be done in person

Hello everyone, I am based in Abuja and the drop box interview waver option is yet to start here. I will will no longer be eligible for drop box after March so I am wondering if I should apply through Lagos .

If so, how do I go about it , does it mean once I secure an appointment date , I would need to go to Lagos to drop off .

Kindly advice . Thank you so much .

Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by ymx(m): 7:54pm On Feb 04, 2022
Prior to the U.S lifting their restrictions on drop-box, I have booked for my visa renewal application and I have a date for May 2023.

With the lifting of the restrictions, I am qualified to apply / renew my F1 visa with the drop-box.

My question is that can I do so with the previous application fees I had paid for my appointment in 2023? or do I need to pay another fee for the drop box?

Also, would i be needed to fill another application or the application I had completed earlier for my 2023 date will suffice for the drop box.

Any insights would be appreciated.
Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by MaryAndrews: 8:23pm On Feb 04, 2022
You do not need to pay new application fees or fill a new application form.
All you need to do is go to the CGI page to cancel your old appointment and book a new Interview Waiver (IW) appointment. They'll ask some questions to check if you qualify for interview waiver before you are directed to the IW booking calendar. So be sure you qualify first before you cancel. The criteria is listed on the Embassy's website.
Also note that as at yesterday, there were no IW dates available but a few people have booked today. So don't panic if there are no dates available. Keep checking, but not more than 4 times a day so that they don't freeze your account for 72 hours.
Good luck!

Did you check more than 4 times? I spoke to an agent yesterday, It seems they block the account after the 4th time on the same day. So did you try more than 4 times yesterday? Or today after 12am before you got a slot?
Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by puffmama: 9:15am On Feb 05, 2022
I checked at about 3.30 am and also checked a few minutes ago, nothing else . I pray I get a slot before end of March as I will no longer be eligible from April . Do you think people with close window may be given a priority cos it appears we may lose our visa fees if we don't get an interview date within a year and I hear normal interview dates are not available till 2024.

Log out immediately I saw “no appointment available” I don’t close the page, I log out completely, then close the page and check again after 40-50 minutes. Also don’t click on continue after logging in, click schedule a new appointment instead

Yes

Read up about P3 and maybe O visas.
I think that's for paid temporary work in entertainment. Musicians, artists, comedian etc
Re: USA Visit Visa Part 4 by mrprolifik: 2:31pm On Feb 05, 2022
Amule5000us:
Yes
.
If you will be paid then b1/b2 is not the right visa for you . You will need a visa that falls under performance artist and that's P Visa. To get this visa your employer needs to file a petition for you over there in the USA and when the petition is approved by USCIS you can then apply for a visa at the American embassy or consulate.
