Nigeria Introduces Biometrics

Nigeria Introduces Biometric

As of Thursday 14 September, 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 or Leicester.

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.

Intervisa 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.
