Enugu Govt praise UK as Visa Submission Centre Set to Open 

The British High Commission in Nigeria has announced the opening of a new temporary submission centre for United Kingdom visas in Enugu State.

According to the commission, the centre would open on September 13, 2023, in addition to its current locations in Abuja, Lagos, and Port Harcourt.

The facility will operate out of the Omedel Luxury Hotel, 4/6 Link Road off Pascal and Jerk Bus Stop, Independence Layout, Enugu, and will shortly offer a twice-a-week service.

The statement read, “The appointment system allows an applicant to select Enugu as their application location when applying for a UK Visa.

“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.”

“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 Enugu State government lauded the United Kingdom Government for setting up a visa centre in the state to facilitate applications by residents in the state and the South-East zone.

In the statement issued by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Prof Chidiebere Onyia, the establishment of the visa centre was part of Gov. Peter Mbah’s requests during the visit to the Government House, Enugu, by the UK High Commissioner to Nigeria, Dr Richard Montgomery, in June.

The statement said that the government received the news of the visa centre with delight and satisfaction, stressing that it would further enhance economic partnership and cultural exchanges between Enugu State and the United Kingdom.

“The Enugu State Government looks forward to a strong, mutually beneficial relationship with the UK, as the visa centre would help cement the relationship.

“The government calls on the people, especially those residing in the South-East, to avail themselves of the opportunity provided to file their visa applications in the state,” the statement said.

It added that the government would ensure improved security for both residents and visitors carrying on business in the state.

It further reiterated that the state was open for business and investment.
