The British High Commission in Nigeria has announced the opening of a new temporary submission centre for United Kingdom visas in Enugu State.
The announcement was made via a statement made available to our correspondent on Monday.
According to the commission, the centre would be opened from September 13, 2023, in addition to current locations in Abuja, Lagos and Port Harcourt.
The facility will operate out of the Omedel Luxury Hotel, 4/6 Link Road off Pascal and Jerk Bus Stop, Independence Layout, Enugu and will shortly offer a twice-a-week service.
The statement read, “The appointment system allows an applicant to select Enugu as their application location when applying for a UK Visa.
“The temporary submission centre in Enugu opens as a Premium Location, meaning it will cost NGN246,250.00, which includes a Premium Lounge appointment, courier return, SMS notifications, general customer support and guidance.”
“Demand for visa services will be carefully monitored and service reviewed/expanded should there be sufficient volumes. TLS will trial this location for at least 3 months to assess uptake of the service and enable decisions on continuation.”
