SWITZERLAND, JULY 21 – The British High Commission in Nigeria has announced that application centres in the country would open from July 28.

The Commission noted that Nigerians hoping to visit the UK could do so once international flights resume.

In March, the Federal Government shut the country’s airspace to domestic and international flights as part of measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

However, the resumption of domestic flights two weeks ago has revived the spirits of Nigerians who expect the government to approve the resumption of international flights.

The British High Commission in Abuja had in a statement said visa application centres which were initially suspended due to the pandemic would reopen “when it is safe to do”.

“We know there are many Nigerian nationals hoping to travel to the UK when flights resume, both for employment and to see family members.

“UKVI is working closely with TSL contact, our commercial partner, to reopen visa application centres that were suspended due to COVID-19,” it had said.

While giving an update on Monday, the Commission tweeted, “Update on visas. Thank you to everyone for your questions and patience. But remember application centres open from 28 July.”
