The centre, described as a premium facility, is expected to handle UK visa processing for a period of ‘at least three months.’

The British High Commission, in a statement announcing the opening of the facility, which is the fourth of such in Nigeria, said the Enugu centre will remain a temporary location in order ‘to assess uptake of the service and enable decisions on continuation.’

“The appointment system allows an applicant to select Enugu as their application location, when applying for UK Visa. This is in addition to current locations in Abuja, Lagos and Port Harcourt.

“The temporary submission centre in Enugu opens as a Premium Location meaning it will cost N246, 250 which include a Premium Lounge appointment, courier return, SMS notifications, general customer support 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 months to assess uptake of the service and enable decisions on continuation,” the High Commission disclosed.

The facility is expected to operate from the Omedel Luxury Hotel, Independence Layout, in Enugu.

“Courier Return is included in the Premium Location fee.

“Once your application has been processed by the UK decision making authority, your passport will be collected by our courier delivery partner, and you will be able to track delivery on their website. We will notify you by email when your passport is dispatched, along with information on how to track the delivery.

“The Enugu Visa Application Centre does not have a passport return facility, and all passports will be returned via courier. Please do not visit the Visa Application Centre in person to collect your passport.

“Customers are advised that any passports which remain uncollected after 3 months from the date they were ready for collection, will be returned to an office of the authority that issued the document, for applications submitted in Nigeria, they will be returned to the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS),” the high commission further stated.
