“We know there are many Nigerian nationals hoping to travel to the UK when flights resume, both for employment and to see family members.
“UKVI are working closely with TSL contact, our commercial partner, to reopen visa application centres that were suspended due to COVID-19.
“UK visa application centres are reopening in phased manner globally when it is safe to do so and when we can operate an effective service.
