The new fees are in retaliation for Nigeria’s high visa fees for U.S citizens applying for Nigerian visas.

The U.S had complained that the $180 price for Nigerian visas was too much, but the Nigerian government refused to reduce it despite consultations between the two governments.

The U.S has thus decided to raise its fees as a retalitory action.
