Mine was at the Spanish embassy in Lagos, well it wasnt difficult at all, afterall it was my dad
doing all the paper work and all that, and I had to travelled to Lagos from Kaduna with my sister
and wen we got there, we had to enter through a different door, and wen i saw how nigerians were
struggling, den i didnt know why I was so amazed.
After a while we went in and they were so polite and we were asked to go and take a photograph at a nearby
studio and dats all, that how my sister and I got our Nationality, as in EU passport from Nigeria! lol
My regret now is I have plans to visit nigeria but to pay the nigerian tourist visa for a 125euros it pissin me off and at the nigerian
embassy in Madrid men GEJ has to do sometin about those folks they are not serious at all! any way sha, I have been here since
and last year i toured Canada n North america, Probably these year ASia!
For those of u still awaitin ur interview i pray for u all and wish u da best of lucks! but mk no mistakes to fly to Atlanta Airport cos the custom there are very useless!

are you or one of your parents a spanish citizen - were u or your parent born in spain?
The reason I ask is because u say u got an EU passport - not visa.
This thread is about Nigerians struggling to get visas to go abroad - not about people coming on here to gloat about their European (UK/SPAIN/GERMANY etc) or US citizenship!

Mine was at the German Embassy!!!!!
A transit visa to be precise back in 2003.
I and 5 other peeps where taken from the
Japanese embassy to the germany embassy
in a special convey. The crowd gathered at
the entrance of the embassy was astonishing.
Stepped out from the vechicle and headed for
the building. The Jp embassy rep went in to do
the filing. Within five minutes of arriving, i was
interviewed in a very small room.
I was standing (no seat avaliable) and the lady
interviewing me was behind a glass. she asked
me my name, age, final destination blah blah blah. Got my transit visa 5mins later, no long thing

Mine was at the American Embassy. Smooth sailing for me. . . . . that was my first trip to the US. Well, after a long wait, the lady at the counter just asked a couple of questions, 5 minutes and we're done. Come back for your passport. January 2010 and I was in Texas at Houston IAH.
Can still travel to the US if I like. Visa still valid till 2012.

1st experience was at BHC Abuja in 2005. I wasnt in anyway nervous, I didnt really know what to expect then. I had to wait for close to 3 hours sitting on the chair waiting for my name to be called. Many people went in, some came out with smiles, others frowned. I was indifferent. I just wanted to get done with it and go back home. I was still a student in OAU then and was enjoying it, so a Uk visa was going to be a bonus and not a biggie.
Got interviewed by a lady close to her 50s. She was calm, I was calm. She went through my visa application form and asked me few questions. She asked if i filled it in myself and I answered negative. She then said she would terminate the interview process as I was not in the position to answer her questions. I responded that it will be silly to do such as the form was only submitted after my approval. She went ahead and asked me for some answers as it was in the form and I fully answered her. E.g my dad's job, mum's maiden name, etc. She went out for 5 mins, placed phone calls to some people, and came back to say I will be granted visa. I asked for my passport and she said I should go out and wait.
While waiting, some plain clothes policemen came and arrested a guy for fake documents. I got my visa with the 1st batch of people on that day. Left the embassy around 12:30pm looking forward to a life in UK.
So far, so learning. So far, so wishing Nigeria can get better and I go back home after my PHD.
Off topic: do people in UK academia not notice that Nigerians surpass the average British student in many ways?

Me: why is it nt standard?
V.o: bcus its a red back ground, standard passort is white background.
V.o: i will give ur parents 1month visa just incase they decide to stay more nd i wil give u a week visa.
Me: i said ok that wil be nice.( bcus i dont intend staying more dan a week as i have to resume bcus i had a meeting in shell which i represent my company.
V.o: were do u stay?
V.o: will it be nice to come back u can pay for a courier at the gate
Me: really that will be nice.
Not up to 10days i got a parcel with d documents. They gave my parents nd stamped my passport denied that they could nt ascertain my return. That i should appeal
I talked to a consultant and he said my sister should do the appeal over there, my sister said its going to take 6wks by then the wedding would be over. That wasnt y problem, my problem is that my passport was stamped with a denial stamp.
Sombody said he wrote an appeal but for 5wks no reply, he went to berlin gate in lagos nd found his documents didnt even cross the wall. After negotaiting nd parting wit some coins, d appeal went in nd after 2weeks he heard frkm them.
I ws thinking how to go about mine, i was in warri, how do i stress my self to lagos, i called d enbassy, d gal that picked was harsh nd i asked what documents should i send for the appeal, she said send any document nd said i should diaturb her she was busy.
So i sent a mail nd i ws replied with the process, i wrote the appeal xplaining why i will come back. Attached xtra docyments, landed properties nd receipts. I was replied that i should send only the appeal which i did coupled with serious prayers. That ws last week. To day i got a mail telling me to send my passort through courier to dem nd com collect i next week, so i sent a mail that do they need my presence or i should send a prepaid courier so as to get my passport back. They said yes, so i sent the document.
Xpecting my visa next week by God's grace.
My write up is long but worth sharing.
Finally i got my visa, so my guess if u ar denied, just appeal with facts nd am sure they will issue the visa.
