A valid yellow fever certificate may be requested on entering Nigeria and all travellers are advised to carry one.

Please also note that health authorities recommend
travellers are vaccinated against cholera, and take appropriate measures to prevent malaria infection.

Applicants who work in any form of media may find their applications subject to delay, with processing times potentially significantly longer than those displayed above.

There may be some small variation from the Consular Fee shown above due to variation in exchange rates, as a significant part of the fee is paid in US dollars.

When applying for a multiple entry visa, please bear in mind that in certain circumstances this may be restricted to single entry at the High Commission's discretion, in which case the higher fee charged for the multiple entry application will not be refunded.

Applications cannot be withdrawn once they have been lodged.

Applications can only be lodged 45 days or less before to the date of travel.


The above fees are fully inclusive, apart from the cost of returning your documents. Unless specifically requested otherwise in writing we will do so by Royal Mail Special Delivery without ‘consequential loss insurance’. Alternatively, should you wish to take out the ‘consequential loss insurance’ (up to £1000, £2500, £5000, £7500 or £10,000), or to use a different postal service or courier / shipping company altogether, please notify your visa consultant in writing or by email. There is, of course, no charge if the documents are collected from our office.

NOTES ON THE ONLINE FORM
On the first page, click Apply Online in the top right-hand menu.

On the next page, below the heading Visa at the top right, click Entry Visa Application Form.

On the next page, choose United Kingdom for Processing Country and click Start Application at the foot of the page.

You will then be asked to log in to an identification account with either Google, Yahoo, OpenID or Facebook (if you don't have one, click on OpenID to create one fairly simply and quickly, although after creating it you may have to start the form again with the link above).

After logging in to your identification account, you reach the form itself. Complete it, and print it out at the end of page 4. It's very important to make a note of the Application ID and Reference Number. After noting these and printing the form, please log out.

Please do not pay online, as this will make corrections to the form impossible.
