Exactly my enquiry, pls I need an urgent and correct response, or rather any other airline I can transit tru, maybe turkey which i can benefit entering for few hours or a day without going tru rigorous visa process in nigeria. I just want to take advantage of the UK visa.
Cyberknight:


The poster isn't transiting in the sense of just passing through the airport and getting on a connecting flight, as she said, she's planning to enter France for a few hours or a day.

Secondly, I don't think that Brexit has changed anything about the waiver of a transit visa for those connecting through CDG or Schiphol to the UK/Ireland, USA, Canada, etc. There is still an ongoing transition period to the end of this year when everything remains the same. However, I haven't yet travelled this year or heard anything in this regard from anyone who has, so I stand to be corrected anyway.

You have been answered already. However, with the UK visa your best bet is the Turkish Evisa but you must use turkish airline.

Go on line , pick your dates and pay. Thats all

Do not mislead people when you are not sure of something.
You can apply for a Turkish E-visa with a single entry visa provided the visa is still valid during your intended stay in Turkey.

This has been addressed severally on previous pages.

Hi, please don't be misinformed, you can apply for a Turkish E-visa with a single entry Schengen visa provided the visa remains valid during your visit to Turkey.

Kindly check previous pages it has been addressed severally.

@Chi4321

The only concern on your application is you are going for 41days visit just to see your husband that is too much but the rest you are fine ....just have hope and faith
Re: Securing Visa To France, Applying From Nigeria... by Beverlyhills: 8:46am On Mar 16
Decisions about visa applications must normally be made within 15 days.

In some cases applications will require further enquiry or documentation, in these cases, the maximum processing time is 30 days.

In certain situations, a Danish embassy will be required to ask the Danish Immigration Service to process an application; here the processing time can be up to 60 days.

Application processing time counts from the time an admissible application is submitted at a diplomatic mission or visa application centre. 'Admissible' means that the mission has decided that the minimum Schengen conditions for submitting an application have been met.

Citizens of certain countries or categories of certain citizens are subject to prior consultation in one or more Schengen countries before a visa may be issued. The processing time in these cases will usually be 10-12 days as a minimum.

Hi everyone!
I applied for a visitors Visa to Denmark, on the 19th of February to meet with my husband .
We got married on the 8th of January.

My husband lives in Denmark , and I was supposed to be visting for 41 days... we booked a flight for 18th of March (2 days time)
On the 27th of Feb I got a Call from the Embassy, and my husband got a mail in Denmark to confirm that he was invitIng me.... which he replied to immediately.
I was hopefully that within 2 days after the interview, I would get a message to pickup my passport !
Until now (16th of March), no messages.... nothing else !
Could anything be wrong

I included this documents during my application
1. Letter of invitation from my husband
2. His passport data page
3. My husbands residency permit .
4. His 6 months pay slip
5. My Saving statement of account (10 million naira)
6. My 4 business statement of account (1million naira)
7. My business registration certificate
8. Marriage certificate
9. Our wedding pictures (with family and friends)
10. Reference from the 2 banks I use .
...
Please,
Does anyone have an idea, why they havnt returned my passport yet ?
I booked a flight for 18th of this month, will this have an effect on the Visa?
I am so confused right now, as I was told it would take less than 15 days to get approval , now it’s almost 1 month .
Please reply, thanks !

Denmark's visa processing has always been rigorous and drawn out for citizens of countries like ours, so you just have to have patience.

In any event, Denmark has closed its borders to all non-citizens and non-residents until April 13, so unfortunately you aren't going to be travelling there on the 18th anyway.

I got my visa approved . I was given one month single and entry . Now my questions is I can’t use the visa at the moment because of the corona visa . Hence I have canceled all travel plans .

Hope I will not have an issue when I reapply because I didn’t use the visa ?

No. Just explain in your cover letter on your next application. Everyone is aware of the current situation

Same. I got my visa and was meant to travel two days ago but I've cancelled all my plans, rescheduled flight and cancelled accomodation. I will apply for another visa by God's grace when everything's settled and if the purpose of my travel comes up again at a later, much safer date. Safety is the best policy right now.

The EU just banned all non-essential travel by non-citizens and non-resident to the bloc for 30 days so all travel plans are automatically cancelled anyway.

Hey house, I need some advise, what would be the best option for someone in their early 30's to travel / relocate to France? I don't want to use agents as most of them are fraudsters, I can fund my trip and I have sufficient amount to show as proof of fund (if required), I know some people go as students but I can hardly speak French. I have an admission to study in a German uni for a while now (Blocked Account also funded) but lately things have proven terrible with the German embassy and their relationship with Nigeria / Nigerians, apparently there are no more interviews dates being given to Nigerians, so I am looking for other options now. I could either relocate to France completely or relocate to France and then move to Germany from there. I need some advise house! all options would be welcome at this point. Thanks

Re: Securing Visa To France, Applying From Nigeria... by Nobody: 11:50am On Mar 26
Unfortunately you cannot relocate except you’ve got a job offer & they process your work visa.

That’s why most people go through the study route but sadly only 20% get to stay back. Rest end up coming back to Nigeria.

Study visa is not meant for immigration.
It’s strictly for study.

Then with your age & not knowing the language is another barrier. I know that some companies that don’t hire people above 30 (because they want fresh energy). Then your lack of foreign experience is another thing.

Your best option is just going to study and hope for the best. Only 1% get to stay back in France because their system don’t want immigrants.

Also anyone going to a country to study with the aim of staying back is taking a gamble. It can either work or not.

The whole purpose of studying abroad is for better education not to remain there. That’s why it’s hard to switch from study visa to PR. Except you’re heading to Canada , Australia etc

However, I do not blame them as well.
If you think about it from another perspective, you wouldn’t fault them. Imagine if Nigeria was like U.K. or all them countries, then people from chad or other these yeye countries are coming to take your jobs and benefit from your country. How would you feel? You will be like ogbeni o, Abeg all these people should go back. Same thing with Ghana must go.

So it makes sense as to why they don’t want people to stay back after studying. They have already rendered the service you paid for; Oya start going. It’s only if you’re an asset that they can reconsider. Who doesn’t want an asset? Unfortunately most immigrants are liabilities than assets. One man will carry his 5 kids in the name of dependents. They are studying for free. On top tax payers money.


You can get U.K. if you have the money & see if you can secure a job within that 2 years post study visa. You can try Canada too even though their strict with visas. US is no chance how.

You can apply to study in Germany from other countries but you will still follow the same blocked account process. I don’t know how much you have but by the time you move to other countries with expenses , tuition etc, I doubt you will still have enough for the blocked account requirement. You should rather apply to Canada or others that don’t require blocked funds & you have better chances of getting the PR.
