UK orders closure of visa application centres

The United Kingdom has announced that its Visa Application Centres in Abuja and Lagos will be closed on Friday and Monday following the February 25 general election. 

On Tuesday, the UK Visas and Immigration department announced the news on Twitter. 

Customers in the United Kingdom can purchase the Keep my Passport service to keep their passport during the closure period. 

"The Visa Application Centres in Abuja, Ikeja, and Victoria Island will be closed on Friday, February 24 and Monday, February 27," it stated. 

"No VAC appointments will be booked on these days and customers will not be able to access the VAC to collect documents/passports. 

"Customers have the option to purchase the Keep my Passport and Courier return services in advance of the VAC closure, in order to retain their passport during the period of closure. 

"UKVI will continue to make decisions on all visa applications," says the agency. 

"Priority Visa services continue to be available. The word "survival" refers to the process of surviving after death. 

"Because the British High Commission offices are not involved in visa decisions and do not hold passports, they are unable to assist."
