The United States Mission in Nigeria on Thursday denied offering a new type of work visa to Nigerians between the ages of 40 and 55 years.
This is in response to a supposed press release by United States Embassy announcing the work permit for Nigerians.
But the US authority said the purported press release circulating is “fake” and is being circulated by “scammers and fraudsters.”
“It’s the same old scam, but in fresh packaging – don’t become a victim,” the mission tweeted.
The mission further urged Nigerians seeking visa information should refer only to official sources.
