Blessedalldway: Good afternoon good People. Please I have a quick question.

I have booked my appointment for Wednesday 3rd(Tier 4 appointment type). This is the earliest date for this type.
However, for the standard appointment type the earliest date is Monday 1st.

Will I be penalized in anyway for changing to the standard appointment type as I have barely 2.5 weeks to resumption.

God bless for your prompt answers.

If ur skol is resuming 2 weeks time as u said Wednesday should do well...I guess it's ikeja u booked...if it's d later advice u to change to ikeja

Otuabaroku: Thanks guys for responding on time. This is how I think it should be done.

You want to send £2k to Nigeria. And the official exchange rate is #280 per £1(for instant). I transfer (#560,000) to your account in Nigeria and you transfer £2000 to my account in UK. No transfer charges from both of us. And everybody is happy.

That's what I am looking for.

U no go see d guy small

paradisewoods: Guys , lets do something about this Teleperformance now. We are just sitting back, self-servicing on the corridors of hope that one day our visa is going to be issued. I feel thats not the way forward. Imagine someone submitted at ikeja on the 21st August and got his visa approval yesterday, while some submitted since 11th of July at Teleperformance and nothing yet. #SheyNaLikeThisWeGoDeDe?
I tried using their complaint link on their website but saying page not found. So sardonic anyways

E go betta..was scheduled for Monday b4 for dem too...as I see ikeja re opened I didn't tink even if I'm delayed for one day cuz I booked Tuesday...u need protest oooooooo

flops: Hello everyone.

I have been quietly following for a while now.

I submitted my application on the 21st of August at Ikeja and I received the approval email today.

I submitted the following

1. CAS
2. Statement of account. (I used 300 Naira as my conversion rate just to ensure)
3. Tranacript
4. Bsc certificate
5. TB test result
6. Personal sponsorship letter stating the total funds available in my account, my reason for studying the chosen course and plans for after graduation.

The TB test was a particularly funny experience because my mind played games with me while I was waiting for the result. I kept thinking about all the people with vicious coughs I had met in my lifetime and which of them could have been a carrier.

I arrived early at Ikeja and was actually allowed to go in an hour before my appointment.

For the interview, I was asked 8 questions.

1. Name, birthday and nationality
2. Title of course
3. Start date
4. Name of university
5. Reason for chosing university
6. Plans for after graduation
7. The effect of the course on plans after graduation
8. Reason for chosing the UK

It took about 6 minutes.

I was anxious about the outcome for 4 reasons
1. I had been refused a Canadian and US visa in the last one year
2. I had been refused a UK visa 9 years ago although I have since been issued the UK visa multiple times.
3. I am 29 and I have worked for my family company since graduation in 2009 in a different field.
4. I graduated with a third class and I chose a top up course in the UK.

At the end of the day, I got the email after 5 working days.

I am grateful to God. All the preparation and packaging and advice did not guarantee the visa, it was simply God.

This forum was immensely helpful. I read the last 100 pages while preparing and I got pointers on every page.

The day before I submitted, I saw the advise on the appendix 8 and I printed it out at the last minute.

I hope my sharing will help those who are planning and those waiting for responses.

Good work Justwise, SpikeC and Co.

You guys don't have no idea how many people you have helped.

Congrat bro....tanks for d info

Bro no blame me joor Lol. Teleperformance is to Tier 4 applicants what Ebola is to humans today. I pray your case is positive cos I dread Teleperformance die!

Amen ooooo.....

HudsonBanks: Concerning non availability of appointment dates for Tier 4 at Ikeja and Abuja I think we should all be a little patient till at least 31st of this month which is just Sunday and then check again for dates before any sort of panicking.

I for one won't ever attempt submitting my application at Teleperformance, I rather go to a bush meat joint and order for "Bat" meat then wait for Ebola than to depend on Teleperformance. Bad as e bad we can risk booking standard appointment at Abuja and hoping for the best. That risk I'm willing to take 100%.

U funny I swear..me don book ooo..Monday..

Please who is this doctor ?
He has put the life of a lot of people at risk and has cost the government millions or billions of Naira.
Unfurtunately he is dead but i recommend a long jail term for the diplomat and survivors of acts like his.

I'm not sure if they have phone number or email to contact them directly hence the idea of contacting the embassy to know exactly the situation of your application.
Justwise is it safe to choose standard appointment cuz dat happen to be the only option left for Abuja..no available date for tier4

I sent a mail to the TB test email address on Friday to book an appointment on Monday at Ikeja, Lagos.

Do I just storm the venue on that Monday (tomorrow) or will I have to wait for a confirmation/invite from them before going?
