The US Mission Nigeria has launched an online system that makes visa application “more efficient and easier.

A statement issued by the body explained that to reduce the time spend during visa interview, applicants for non-immigrant visas can now upload their passport photo themselves after completing their online application.

“The photo upload process is simple. First, applicants should obtain a digital photo that meets the required specifications found on https://visaguide.world/us-visa/photo-requirements/,” the statement read.

“Photos must be in color, meet the size requirements, and be taken in front of a plain white or off-white background, among other requirements explained on the site. Applicants may either scan a hard copy of a photo or take one with a digital camera or phone.

“Next, applicants should complete their visa application online. The system will prompt them to upload their photo and submit their application. Applicants will be required to attempt to upload the photo three times.

“If they are unsuccessful, applicants should carry a hard copy of their passport photo to the US embassy or consulate for uploading there.”

Gary Westfall, non-immigrant visa chief at the US consulate in Lagos, said the mission was offering the system in an effort to provide applicants with better customer service.

“We are constantly striving to find ways to better serve visa applicants, and we believe that they’ll appreciate this new photo upload system,” he said.

“It will save them valuable time when they apply for a US visa.”

Visa applicants can begin uploading their own photos immediately when they complete their visa application at http://www.ustraveldocs.com/ng.
