The United Kingdom high commission in Nigeria is offering to renew expired or about to expire 30-day visas for free.
In a statement on Thursday, the commission said the renewal will be free till December 2020 and each will be valid for 90 days.
“As a result of the disruptions to travel caused by COVID-19, we are experiencing high demand for replacement vignettes for 30-day visas to travel to the UK for work, study or to join family,” the statement read.
“If an individual’s 30-day visa to travel to the UK for work, study or to join family has expired, or is about to expire, they can request a replacement visa with revised validity dates free of charge until the end of this year.
“This does not apply to other types of visas. This process will be in place until the end of 2020. The replacement visa will be valid for 90 days.
“To request a replacement visa, individuals can arrange to return their passport to their visa application centre in Nigeria without an appointment.”
It also urged customers to be patient as there may be some delays in normal services.
The commission announced, on July 9, that it would resume visa application for intending travellers.
At the time, it said visa application centres will reopen in a phased manner globally.
