The U.S. Embassy has said that the suspended consular services in Abuja may resume after the Eid-el-Kabir holidays.
The embassy stated this in an updated information on its website Thursday.
It read: “We regret the inconvenience this has caused to our applicants in Abuja and hope to resume operations after the Eid-el-Kabir holidays.
”Please monitor the Facebook and Webpage of the U.S. Embassy for the next status update of consular operations in Abuja.”
The embassy had in a statement on Wednesday, announced temporary suspension of its regular services for visas and American Citizen Services in Abuja.
It, however, noted that other offices within the Embassy remained open.
The embassy stressed that consular functions at the U.S. Consulate in Lagos were not affected with the development.
The mission encouraged applicants to contact the Consular Office in Lagos for immediate emergency travel.
