The British High Commission has suspended visitor visa applications from all red list Countries, including Nigeria.
This was announced in a statement hours after UK added Nigeria to its travel red list as a result of concerns over the Omicron Covid Variant.
The suspension of processing visitor visa applications will only be lifted when the travel ban placed on the Country is removed.
The Commission noted that application of those who applied for a visit visa in a red list Country and met the UK Immigration Rules will be paused.
Also those who possess a valid visit visa and are intending to travel to England as a visitor from a red list Country will not be allowed entry
Meanwhile, Nigerian Ambassador to UK, Sarafa Tunji speaking live on BBC, also said the measures are hugely unfortunate for people who already had travel plans.
