The United Kingdom (UK) has announced that it is temporarily suspending its walk-in service for visa applicants in Nigeria.
These Visa Application Centres or VACs as they are known, serve as support centres from which visa applicants are attended to.
In a statement released yesterday, the high commission said:
“To protect the safety of customers waiting outside of our Visa Application Centres, the Flexi Appointment (walk-in) service has been temporarily suspended. You will not be able to book one of these appointments online or by turning up at the VAC.
“Visa customers who turn up at the VAC significantly before their appointment, will be asked to leave and return at the correct date and time.”
The mission however mentioned that emergency cases such as medical ones will be treated on a case-by-case basis.
