The U.K Denies Suspension Of Visas To Nigerians, Says It Changed Priority


The United Kingdom has denied several reports stating it denies Nigerian applicants access to student, work, and family visas.

The British High Commission released a statement that clarified that it never denied visas to Nigerians but instead, reprioritized the application and granting process due to the ongoing response to the humanitarian predicament emerging from the Russia-Ukraine War.

The full statement reads;

“Following the statement issued by the British High Commission in Nigeria on 15 March, ‘temporary suspension of priority visas for student, work and family applications,’ we are aware of report circulating in the Nigerian media and online that the UK has suspended student, work and family visas for Nigerian applicants.

“This is not true. It is still possible to apply for any category of the UK visa in the usual way on gov.uk and via our Visa Applications Centres in Nigeria.

“Our VACs remain open and customers are welcome to apply for a standard visa of any category in the usual manner, this includes student, family, work and visit visas.

“However, due to a reprioritisation of resources in response to the humanitarian crisis arising from the invasion of Ukraine, the UK has temporarily suspended its priority visa service.

“As our 15 March statement made clear, this temporary suspension only applies to the UKVI’s expedited, added-value ‘Priority’ and ‘Super Priority’ visa services.  This suspension is to enable the UKs global visa operation to prioritise applications for the new Ukraine Family Scheme.”
