Read the full notice below:


Distinguished Colleagues,

You may recall that the President had sought the intervention of the United States Ambassador to Nigeria for expedited interview dates for members who intend to attend the IBA Conference in Miami, Florida.

We are happy to report that the US Embassy has approved and is open to approving all requests for expedited appointment that mentions the Nigerian Bar Association, the International Bar Association and any application relating to the legal profession in Miami.

To this end, many expedited appointment slots have been made available. Members are therefore urged to apply for emergency/expedited appointment. Members can also opt for interview waiver appointments.

The Consular Office has however noted that some applicants may be better served by making regular appointments, requesting for expedited appointments, and going for in-person interview.

Members are thus advised to select the option that best serves their application and take the necessary steps.

For further enquiries, please contact Kazeem Nasir: 08035894855.

The President wishes all applicants the best outcome.
