What Do You Think About The New UK Immigration Law That Will Force Nigerians To Pay £3,000 To Enter The UK?


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.


Any advise on how the Nigerian Government can deal with this development?

    Unfair and discriminatory. The rule is likely to cause unjustifiable interference with private and family lives of families split between Nigeria and UK who may be unable to pay the deposit. Also has to be remembered that for two parents to visit their child in the UK the deposit will be £6000.

      u are right.. it is outrageous… Am a Ghanaian and i feel disgusted that my motherland and fatherland (Nigeria) has been mentioned.. wld they pay such amount to visit us…smh

      Am not surprise about this latest development from UK. We have to face the reality and our so called leaders should should create a platform for young people to grows in Nigeria rather than going to waste away in UK. How many Briton can afford 3,000 Pounds as a deposit? am sure less than 2%

    This is absolutely unfair, this new u.k immigration woman is just trying so hard to victimize developing nations not in E.U, this policy is synonymous to saying it’s okay for U.K citizens or Nationals to enter any country and make money, use their public service and all, but it’s wrong for citizens of other countries to go to U.K. That’s just disheartening. Governments of the countries affected need to do something about this.

    Absolutely ridiculous. Good thing is we get the money back. Amen!

    The simple solution is for the Nigerian government to charge the same (or more) for UK citizens entering Nigeria.

    Nigerians stop going to the UK. U are the ones that have spoiled that country with your fraud and taking advantage of benefits, you and the bloody indians. My parents are Nigerian but I don’t identify with Niegrian here because they don’t act right. Benefits scam, Marriage scam, Credit Card scams, they are behind it all. I think they should ban all Nigerians. It’s shameful to even have Nigerian lineage, thank God I am British! England for the English

      u r just an idiot ok? good u hide ur face

    • ibrahim June 26, 2013 at 12:50

      you are nothing but a bastard Nigerian, how did your father nationalised for you to become a British born, is it not the same crookest way,. you must be an idiots truly

      Shame on you for living on cultural sympathy, weather you are born or Burnt in Britain, mind you that you still have the blood and lineage of an african coutry, am really sympathetic for you for having this kind of mental attitude about your Roots.

    • Amos June 27, 2013 at 12:13

      Am sorry for you. I have lived and work in UK my self to the high level as an accountant. I made a decision to return home. The truth is that you yourself know that you are not part of them. When the heat gets on they will also flush you out. Are you saying you have not see a Briton involves in your claims above? stop being kidding. The main reason why people act and behaves in a certain way is a matter of their personality and not necessarily the nationality. AM GREATLY PROUD TO BE A NIGERIAN.

      • Omolola June 27, 2013 at 15:33

        sadly he said the truth. however, that is not a reflection of the better descent and hard working Nigerians going about their lawful activities and contributing to the growth of the UK.

  6. Marvis David June 24, 2013 at 19:07

    This all thing is bullshit, why will a Nigeria deposit 3,000 pounds for a dirty country like Uk.

  7. Shebi I get Country? June 24, 2013 at 22:46

    Eh, is it not the person desperate to travel that will feel it? Nigerian should pls boycott. But trust our people, they will raise the money. they never chop finish but they must travel to London. and it cos of such attitudes the UK can chance us…….

  8. Raymond June 25, 2013 at 20:00

    If the UK government did not want any nigerian in thire country, they just have to say it, not to pay £3000 it’s sound crazy

  9. wiz June 26, 2013 at 14:17

    and also its whit tunisia the same or what ?

    How about reacting to the proposed £3000 the way Abacha reacted years back when UK govt refused our planes permission to land in UK airports. He simply stopped BA from landing in Nigeria. The moment the curfew was lifted BA rushed back to Nigeria because they lost a lot of income during the period. If Nigerians boycott UK for just six months, they will stop humiliating and disrespecting us. Let our govt and individuals wake up.. If we don’t respect ourselves irrespective of our political and social problems, nations of the world will never respect us.

    So it’s a couple days past the initial announcement and I am past the initial shock and awe and wtf… but you know, seeing it from their perspective I see their point.

    But I don’t think it’ll pass because it comes off a bit discriminatory

  14. Jesujoba August 15, 2013 at 17:17

    Let face d reality,even america so called world power of today,they formerly has their problem and a man had a vision that black man will rule and it came to pass and despite d problem we present facing & hardship by nigerian citizen,d question is that ,what is source or root of our problems? let go back to d history and u discover that uk is our source of problem along with our leaders in nigeria,it is time for nigeria goverment to wake up and plan 4 next generation.uk 3000 bond policy is totaly a stupid idea

  15. olu September 27, 2013 at 14:06
