Requirements Per Person


The Nigeria High Commission has instituted a web-based visa appointment system and visa application form, see example. The visa appointment and application form must be completed online and then printed. When completing the online application form, the visa fee must be paid for at the time using a credit or debit card which is compatible with the "Verified by Visa" process. The Consulate will not accept visa applications and documentation where the online form has not been completed and the online payment has not been made.

In order to fulfil this particular requirement, the applicant has two options:

1. The Applicant can complete the online process themselves

To do this, please use the URL link and follow the instructions. More details on how to navigate the website can be found in the section below entitledNigerian Online Application Process.

Please ensure that once the form has been completed, you print out the following components from the online portal and include them with the rest of your application pack: 

  • The "Visa Acknowledgment Slip"
  • The "Visa Payment Slip"
  • The fully completed four page Visa Application Form 

Failure to supply these documents will result in the non issuance of your visa.

2. Universal visas completes the process form on the applicant's behalf


Universal visas can assist the traveller in completing the online application form which can be a time consuming process. This is offered as a Premium Service at a cost of £10 plus VAT in addition to all other service fees and current Universal visas handling fees. 

Universal Visas can also offer online payment service on your behalf. This is offered as a Premium Service at a cost of £20 plus VAT in addition to all other sevice fees and visa fee costs.

The Nigerian High Commission has an appointment system for the issuance of visas. Appointment dates are automatically scheduled when the online application process is completed and payment has been made.

During peak periods appointment dates may be several weeks from the initial date of application. For this reason, Universal visas strongly advise clients not to book their travel before their visa has been issued.


When applying for a Nigerian visa, it is extremely important that the information supplied in all supporting documentation is consistent with that submitted on the online application. Failure to do this will result in the application being rejected. In these instances, online payments are non-refundable.


Recent bank statement with at least a minimum £500 credit balance.

The Embassy of Nigeria requires that all individuals applying for a Nigeria visa in the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland provide biometric data, specifically fingerprints, as part of the visa application process. To facilitate this, applicants will be required to appear in person at the Visa Application Centre in London.
It is now even more imperative that the application, supporting documents and payment be in complete conformance to consular requirements so as to avoid the potential rejection and thus avoid subsequent visits, costs and inconvenience. To this end, we are enhancing our service offering to support applicants with a fully comprehensive service to ensure documents are correctly checked and verified prior to the application being submitted to the Visa Application Centre.
Universal Visas will provide the following:
Provision of application forms, requirements and instructions on how to obtain your necessary visa
Quality checking of your application and supporting materials to ensure it is complete, and minimising the risk of refusal at the Embassy
Provision of the compulsory appointment for your documents to be submitted to the Visa Application Centre
Meet and Greet at the Visa Application Centre with all required documents and support with the collection of your biometric data
Assistance with payment of all visa submission fees on the applicant's behalf and consolidation of these fees within our invoicing and reporting.
Collection of the completed passport and visa and secure delivery back to the applicant via their chosen delivery method.
Please complete an order form.

    I note than on my one year multiple entry I am allowed 180 days on each visit. Due to the current weather in London, maybe I should consider extending my planned visit to India by another few weeks.
    Thanks again, your efforts are much appreciated.
