The U.K government’s Visa Office in Nigeria has announced the resumption of its Priority Visa (PV) in all the Nigerian visa application centres from January 24, 2022.
In a statement by the U.K. Visa and immigration on the Twitter page of the British High Commissioner, the Commission noted that only priority visa services will resume for the time being due to the continued impact of COVID-19 on courier routes.
