Nigerian citizens can get a visa to go to the United Kingdom. The British Government announced the news for the Nigerian people. In April, the British High Commissioner, Mr. Paul Arkwright said that there would be a special service. Nigerians will be able to get the UK visa. In addition, they can actually get it on the same day they apply.
Now we can see that the process to get UK visa Nigeria has became much easier. It is terrible to imagine what a difficult process it usually was – documents, endless queues and sometimes failures. It would seem that Nigerian people don’t ask for much. All we want is to visit another country without any difficulties. But when leaving the country, there are a large number of obstacles to face.
Fortunately, now we have one less problem. Now, if your UK visa application is made today, you can get your visa on this same day. On the other hand, if there are any special circumstances, you will have to wait only five days if it is not possible to get UK visa on the same. Five days is not so bad, right?
By the way, any types of visa application issues will definitely be resolved within 15 days. The embassy has reduced the maximum term.
And we have one more good news. If, for some reason, you cannot get a visa on the day of application and in five days you will have to pay less money! UK visa fees in Nigeria will be cheaper for you due to the delay!
Now let’s discuss the issue of UK visa fees in more detail. Pay attention to this very important information. The Nigerian banking sector introduced some credit card restrictions. When you make a credit card payment in excess of US$300 you may need to get authorization from your bank. Your payment can be declined. Unfortunately, these are the rules.
