The UK Work Visa, Student Visa Application has been suspended temporarily following the Ukrain-Russia War.
United Kingdom Embassy in Nigeria says it halts the UK Work Visa, Student Visa Application process because of Ukraine Family Scheme.
The embassy said on Tuesday that the Ukraine Family Scheme had been formed in response to the humanitarian situation caused by the invasion of Ukraine.
Nigerians whose passports were ready for collection would be called by the Visa Application Centre, according to the announcement headlined “Temporary Suspension of Priority Visas for Student, Work, and Family Applications.”
“UK Visas and Immigration is currently prioritizing applications made under the Ukraine Family Scheme, following its launch and in response to the humanitarian crisis arising from the invasion of Ukraine, the statement read.
“As a result, UKVI has temporarily suspended priority and super-priority services for new study, work, and family applications. Customers with standard applications in study, work, and family routes may experience some delays in the processing of their application.
“We are still currently unable to offer PV for visitor applications in Nigeria. Standard visitor visa applications are currently taking an average of six weeks to process.
