“The appointment system allows an applicant to select Enugu as their application location when applying for a UK Visa. This is in addition to current locations in Abuja. Lagos and Port Harcourt,” the statement read.

“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.”

The British High Commission in Nigeria explained that 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,” the statement concluded.
