UK Adopts a New Visa Application Process For Nigerians       

The British High Commission said on Friday in a statement that the UK Embassy in Nigeria has adopted a new visa application process.

Joe Abuku, Spokesperson of the commission, described the new process as a slight change in which “Visa staff now only need electronic versions of support documents.”

Taking effects from December 5th, the new process for customers applying for a UK visa in Lagos, Victoria Island and Ikeja, would bring applicants benefits from digital improvements to the UK visa application process.

 “TLSContact (responsible for UK Visa Application Centres in Nigeria) will scan your supporting documents whilst you’re at the visa application centre, and then return your original documents to you,” the statement said.

“They will then send these (electronic) documents to UKVI, with your passport and application form, and visa officers will consider your application in the usual way."

The commission has also demanded applicants to make sure they complied with requirement to provide all documents in A4 size, while any other documents smaller or larger than A4 should be photocopied onto A4 sized paper in order to avoid delays in the visa application.

Advising customers to remove any clips or pins from documents before submitting their application, the Commission cautioned that any torn, crumpled or heavily creased documents, which is difficult to photocopy, should be photocopied onto A4 sized paper before submission, as they can’t be scanned in this condition.
