The United States Mission to Nigeria and United Bank for Africa Plc yesterday at the U.S. Consulate General in Lagos, formally signed a visa fee collection agreement.
The Group Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of UBA, Mr. Tony Elumelu and the U. S. Consul General, Mr. Brian Browne signed on behalf of their respective organizations.
With the formal execution of the agreement, UBA will commence fee collection and retail banking services to the U.S. Mission and its clients. This is expected to bring simplicity, speed and convenience to the payment process for non-immigrant visa applicants and other clients of the U.S. Mission.
Specifically UBA will begin collection of the N14, 000.00 non-immigrant visa fees from visa applicants at designated branches. After paying the fee, applicants will be given a receipt that will serve as evidence of payment when the applicants go for their interviews. Although the U.S. Mission encourages applicants to make their non-immigrant visa fee payment at any of the designated UBA branches, cash payments will continue to be acceptable until the end of this week.
Beginning next Monday however, all non-immigrant visa applicants will be required to visit one of the designated branches of UBA to make payments before their interview. The US Mission and UBA maintained that they are committed to making this change as easy as possible for all applicants. The new payment procedure will simplify the visa process and promises to further improve the quality of service provided.
In recent years, the US Mission has invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in renovations and other improvements designed to support more comfortable and efficient processing of visa applications.
UBA is one of the largest banks in Nigeria. It has an expansive network of over 430 branches, providing integrated financial services designed to make life easier for people.
