The Embassy of the United States of America in Nigeria says its consular services were not affected by the on going government shutdown in the US.
This announcement was made in a tweet on New Year Day via its twitter account @USEmbassyAbuja.
It said services are open and advised those with scheduled appointments to visit the facilities in Lagos and Abuja.
“U.S. Embassy Abuja and Consulate General Lagos remain open for for all consular business, including visa interviews. Please attend your regularly scheduled interview,” the tweet read.
The embassy had previously shut its doors to consular services at the locations because of the budget gridlock in Washington DC.
