If you know which UK visa you want to apply for, the Applying for a UK visa section explains how to apply.
As part of your application, you will need to visit one of our visa application centres in Abuja, Lekki (Lagos), or Ikeja. These are managed by our commercial partner, VFS Global. VFS Global is not involved in the decision-making process and cannot influence the decision on your visa application.

If you currently have temporary permission to stay in Nigeria (for example, as a student or a visitor), you can only apply for some types of UK visa
