New UK VISA Process For Nigerians.
Reports from the British High Commission have revealed that the United Kingdom Embassy in Nigeria will, on December 5, start a new visa application process.
Joe Abuku, the commission’s spokesperson, described the new process as a slight change in which “Visa staff now only need electronic versions of support documents.”
The new process, which will take effect from December 5 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.
“TLS Contact (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,”
“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,” he said
In order to avoid delays in the visa application centre, the Commission urged applicants to ensure 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.
While advising all customers to remove any clips or pins from documents before submitting their application, the Commission warned that any torn, crumpled or heavily creased documents, which is difficult to photocopy, should be photocopied onto A4 sized paper before submitted, as they can’t be scanned in this condition.
