Dress Code For Visa Application Interview - US Embassy Advises Nigerians

The Embassy of United States of America in Nigeria has clarified that dress code is not a requirement for obtaining the country’s visa.

Speaking during a Facebook live session on Wednesday, Consular Officers said the applicants could come for interview in traditional Nigerian dresses which they find unique.

US Embassy officials who addressed common mistakes seen on DS 160 application form, maintained that an applicant does not need to know anyone in the US or have a prior travelling experience to be granted a visa.

“No. It’s not a consideration when doing your interview.

Be comfortable. Don’t feel like you need to put on a suit if you don’t usually wear a suit. Don’t wear a suit.

Wear what you would wear if you are going to any normal appointment.

We want you to be you. We want you to be as relaxed as possible for the interview. Talk to us.”

The Embassy on Monday, insisted that contrary to popular opinion, it doesn’t enjoy denying Nigerians visa.

    Dress code on getting a interview would not that big issue i guess. But you should always keep in mind to wear decent and elegant dress upon going to an interview.
