The United States (U.S) Embassy in Abuja has announced that due to reasons beyond its control the Embassy is temporarily unable to provide regular services for visa and American Citizen Services in Abuja, but other offices within the Embassy remain open.

The US Mission made this known in a statement stressing that consular functions at the U.S. Consulate Lagos are not affected and will continue.

“Until further notice, applicants are encouraged to contact the Consular Office in Lagos for immediate emergency travel. Please monitor the Facebook and Webpage of the U.S. Embassy for updates on consular operations. Scheduled visa and ACS applicants for Abuja will be contacted for rescheduling.

“American citizens in northern Nigeria with emergency services needs should continue to contact the after-hours emergency number for Abuja at 09461-4000 and press “0” to go to the operator to request assistance. We regret the inconvenience this has caused to our applicants and hope to resume operations soon,” the statement said.
