British High Commission in Nigeria has said it will commence visa services in the country from July 28.

Visa services had been shut down months ago in reaction to the spread of the coronavirus disease in Nigeria, the United Kingdom, and the rest of the world.

The High Commission in a tweet on Tuesday has now said Visa Application Centres will be open in Abuja, Ikeja and Victoria Island.

It added that testing will also commence for the International Language Testing System.

The commission stated that applicants must have an appointment to visit a VAC and will not be admitted without one.

According to the commission, appointment booking table has already been opened for applicants to submit new visa applications.

Applicants who visit the centres will be required to provide a body temperature reading, wear a mask, and respect social distancing guidelines, as advised by authorities.

The commission added;

If you have already submitted a visa application and are awaiting a decision from UK Visas & Immigration, you will be contacted shortly by our staff regarding your application status and passport collection options.

Visa applicants who opt for courier service have been advised that delivery of documents could take longer than usual due to the disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Applicants were also advised to familiarise themselves with new rules that have been implemented for people entering the UK because of COVID-19.
