The British High Commission, on its website, has announced that the commission has launched Super Priority Visa Service in Nigeria where visa would be processed under 24 hours for travellers who need it urgently.
British High Commissioner, Paul Arkwright, expressed delight over the new development of the Super Priority Visa service in Nigeria, stating that it would ease a lot of stress on travellers.
He said, “I am pleased to see the Super Priority Visa service being launched in Nigeria.
“This comes at an additional cost but is designed to give greater flexibility to our customers and underlines our strong commitment to making improvements to the visa services we offer.
“We expect this new service to be particularly useful for business. We understand that business opportunities and urgent requirements can arise at very short notice.
“We recognise this and want to facilitate such travel to the UK with this new super-fast service.”
He further said, “It is offered alongside our current Priority Visa (front of queue processing five to seven-day) and standard (15-day) services.
“The UK is the only European country to offer a visa decision in 24 hours.
“The Super Priority Visa service is aimed largely at key business customers and those needing to travel urgently by providing a visa decision for collection at the Visa Application Centre the working day following submission.”
The High Commission said those applying in the “Visitors” or “Points Based System Tier 4” are eligible to use the Super Priority Service.
It said, appointments are available from Mondays to Thursday from 8.30 a.m. to 10 a.m. and Fridays from 8.30 a.m. to 9 a.m. at the Abuja and Lagos centres only.
“Extending the Super Priority Visa service to Nigeria is another example of how the UK is leading the world in the provision of premium visa services for those coming to the UK to visit, do business or study.’’
