Morning my people.

I got a Tier 2 job in the NHS and have been requested to get a police clearance certificate (certificate of good conduct). Has anyone done this or have an idea of how to go about it within the UK? Have been calling the Nigeria Embassy in London to ask for procedure on how to go about but no response from them. I have booked an appointment with Scotland Yard (Met Police) but I don't know if I need to go to the Nigeria Embassy before going for thumb-printing at Scotland Yard.

Your responses will be highly appreciated

NB: I am currently in the UK on Tier 4 visa

I did that couple of years ago, had to get a letter from Nigerian embassy, book an appointment with a local police station for finger print with the letter from Nigerian embassy then i paid £20 for the fingerprint. After that i sent the fingerprint to Nigeria to my elder brother who visited CID office for criminal record report.

I think if you have been in the UK for 3yrs you don't need to go through all these process, you just get everything done here in the UK.

The only issue was dealing with Nigerian embassy as they delayed the whole process.

Good day everyone, I went to Abuja tls center yesterday to submit application for Tier 2 visa. I went with the application, my supporting documents, new and old passports and photocopies of data page. When I got there, I was asked to make photocopy of EACH PAGE of the old passport. This is just to inform you guys so you don't make the same mistake! If you are submitting old passports, make photocopy of each page, to avoid wasting money when you get there.
Anyway I really like the new system, all my original documents were returned after they scanned them. Patiently waiting for visa approval smiley

Thanks for the update

Thanks @Justwise. Flight ticket is very high as of now, can i add shopping cost to total money available for the trip?



Honestly you are not helping your case, rather than reducing cost you are adding more, you can not impress the ECO by budgeting higher than you earn in 2months.

Shopping is not part of visa requirements.

You can definitely get a ticket below that figure if you seriously want to search for one

Thanks @Justwise, i'm not being stubborn here, the reason I stated that is because I have other source of income which often generates me money. Can I reduce the total budget to my 2 and half months salary? That's 450,000?

If you include your marriage certificate, is it compulsory to include pictures......if it's only for visit visa .

And if someone paid in just 42k into my account do I have to explain the reason

It's not compulsory to include marriage pictures but just to convince the Visa officer that it's real.

Yes, you have to explain the 42k in an additional information or on a cover letter.

Not adding pictures has been used as one of the reasons for visa refusal here.

Explain every deposit in your account that is not your salary

Wow. I have 3 old passports. Making photocopies of each page of each passport would cost me some money.

Yes o, the guys around the tls place are making money from the photocopies. They were charging 50 naira per copy but I eventually paid 30 naira, which is still expensive so it is definitely cheaper to make your photocopies before you go there.

The Nigerian Passport is at least 32pages. Since it's rather small to take a photocopy of a single page, does this mean that, it was two leaflets on a photocopied page? That is, did you have 16 Photocopied papers after making the photocopy?
I just want to have a clearer picture cos you said photocopy each page...Thank you.

Hello Nairalanders,

I have stated on the additional information that I get income from my landed property which I include the receipts in the documents. And I made some cash deposits of 50k and below. Do I still have to write a cover letter explaining all funds?

Pls respond this is urgent.
