It has been announced that UK visitors from Nigeria (and 5 other “high risk” countries – India, Pakistan, Ghana, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh) will now be forced to pay a £3,000 bond to enter the United Kingdom.
What this means is even after you have received your visa to visit the United Kingdom, to enter the country you will have to pay £3,000, this is aside your non refundable visa fees.
Being a Nigerian just got a whole lot harder!
The 3k is refundable & to deters overstaying and recovers costs if a foreign national has used public services.’
The response so far on social media has not been favourable, £3,000 to enter the UK is a lot! And for those saying “if you don’t like it, visit another country” unfortunately this is not an option for a lot of people as they have family & loved ones in the UK.
Please share your thoughts on the introduction of this £3,000 bond for Nigerians and other “high risk” countries.
