The British High Commission in Nigeria says it will soon begin to receive visa applications from Nigerians willing to travel to the United Kingdom.

The Commission noted that Nigerians hoping to visit the UK could do so once international flights resume in Nigeria.

The Federal Government had in March shut the country’s airspace to domestic and international flights as part of measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

However, with the resumption of domestic flights on Wednesday, Nigerians are in high spirits, expecting the government to okay the restart of international flights.

In a statement on Thursday, the British High Commission in Abuja said visa application centres which were initially suspended due to the pandemic would reopen “when it is safe to do”.

The statement read, “We know there are many Nigerian nationals hoping to travel to the UK when flights resume, both for employment and to see family members.
