Starting October 23, 2018, Embassy Yaounde will no longer offer an interview waiver option (“drop box”) for applicants seeking a non-immigrant visa renewal within one year of the expiration of their current visa. From that date forward, all applicants who are not engaged in official governmental or diplomatic travel will be required to make an appointment and be interviewed by a consular officer.
