Paper Based Applications Scrapped As UK Reviews Visa Application Procedure For Nigerians

March 23, 2013   ⁠

The United Kingdom is reviewing its visa application procedure which now requires all applicants to complete an online application form rather than a paper-based application form from March 25, 2013.

A document from Hooman Nouruzi, the Political and Press Secretary at the British High Commission in Abuja says advice on the visa application process and a link to the online application system could be found on dedicated Nigeria webpages at www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/countries/nigeria

According to the document, the visa application centres in Abuja and Lagos run by the official commercial partner, VFS Global, will no longer accept visa applications which have not been completed online.

“The UK Border Agency and its commercial partner, VFS Global, are committed to providing an efficient visa service for all customers, and delivering a range of optional services to make the visa application process as convenient as possible. To help modernise the UK visa operation in Nigeria, from 25 March 2013, all visa applicants must complete their application online before attending one of our visa application centres to submit documentation and provide biometrics”, the document added.

It advises applicants to only submit genuine documents in support of their visa application as submitting forged or fraudulent documents could result in a 10 year ban. The UK is the destination of choice for Nigerian tourists and business travellers. More information about UK immigration and customs information is available at
