Lagos - The United Kingdom has adopted a new visa application process for Nigerians, British High Commission on Friday announced.
Spokesperson of the commission, Joe Abuku, in a statement said the new process is only a bit different from the previous one.
The new process, which takes 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.
“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.
In order to avoid delays in the visa application centre, the Commission requested 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.
