High Commission News!!



  The Nigeria High Commission, London, notes with deep concern, the teeming presence of Nigerians at the High Commission on public holidays for services relating to passport renewals, Emergency Travel Certificates (ETCs), visas, and other consular issues.

  We wish to reiterate to Nigerians in the United Kingdom and the general public that the High Commission will not be opened during the holidays declared by the Federal Government of Nigeria and Her Majesty's Government. .

  In view of the foregoing, we implore Nigerians and the entire members of the public to always revert to the High Commission's website for information on opening days and hours of the Mission before embarking on a visit to the High Commission..

  Please note that applicants for Nigerian passports who are given biometric appointments on public holidays (through the appointment generated by the Nigeria Immigration Service, Abuja) will have an opportunity to visit the Nigeria High Commission, London, at a convenient date thereafter for biometrics within the next two weeks.

  Nigeria High Commission, London, remains committed to providing effective and efficient service delivery to Nigerians and the entire public in the United Kingdom and hereby seeks further cooperation of all in this regard.

Nigeria High Commission,
London, United Kingdom.
