With the introduction of the issuance of the biometric visa, the Nigerian Consulate in New York has said that applicants for the Nigeria visa can now get it in 48 hours.
The acting Consul-General, Tanko Suleiman, who disclosed this at the commencement of the biometric visa processing in New York, said that the new process had simplified the issuance of Nigerian visa.
According to Suleiman, with the commencement of the biometric visa issuance, no applicant should spend more than 25 minutes to complete his or her enrollment.
The Federal Government had, on Monday, commenced the biometric visa issuance, becoming the first country in Africa to achieve that feat.
The Nigerian envoy said the federal government has appointed Online Integrated Solutions Limited (OIS) as the company to handle the biometric visa project.
Suleiman therefore appealed to applicants in the U.S. to be courteous and orderly as the new system would finally address any frustrations in obtaining the Nigerian visa.
