Dec 5, 2013 – Nigerians To Pay British Visa Application Fee Online In US Dollars

A new UK visa application rule has been enforced by the British High Commission in Nigeria for Nigerian visa applicants.

Effective December 16, 2013,  all UK visa applicants must apply online and pay online in US dollars.

This was disclosed by Rob Fitzpatrick, the spokesperson for the commission yesterday.

The PR reads:

“From December 16 2013 all applications for a UK visa must be completed using our online application system and paid for online in US dollars. Payment can be made using Verve debit card, Visa or MasterCard credit or debit cards or the e-wallet PAGA.

“The move to online application and payments will deliver a streamlined application process and is consistent with a wider global trend to online transactions and payments.

“It meets the requirements of the UK Government’s Digital by Default initiative and will help cut costs in the management of the visas operation, which in turn helps to keep visa fees down,”.
