- Baxter, nonetheless, couldn’t promptly give the absolute number of utilizations from Nigerians during the period.
- Baxter emphasized that adjustment of the guidelines of understudies bringing wards was a need, given a global test.
- In the entire year before that, they gave around 324,000.
Joined Realm (UK) said it gave 132,000 visas to Nigerians in the principal half of this current year, Jonny Baxter, English Agent High Chief in Lagos, told the News Organization of Nigeria at the end of the week.

1,32,000 Visas to Nigerians by the UK
The UK, in that year, gave around 3,000,000 visas, and of those 3,000,000 visas, 324,000 were given to Nigerians, which is around 10%.
If we ponder Nigeria’s populace, compared with the world, that is a higher extent of Nigerians taking up those visas and coming to the UK which he views as something worth being thankful for.
The UK has countless Nigerian understudies in the nation, and as far as unfamiliar understudies in the UK, Nigeria is second just to India.
They welcome and are worth the numerous Nigerians that they have coming to the UK to study or settle, for however long they are coming through legitimate courses, and the nation’s principles must be followed and regarded.
In 2019, Nigerian understudies going to the UK got 1,500 wards. By 2022/2023, that number had ascended to 52,000 wards, which is an enormous increment.
Nigeria isn’t interesting, as it has occurred for the overwhelming majority of different nations and to be sure, this change on the wards is a global test.
It isn’t business as usual that a country, England for this situation, that is confronting that sort of progress in the quantities of individuals coming into the nation, needs to take a gander at its strategy and would need to change and revise its arrangement.
This is certainly not an instance of saying that they don’t believe understudies should come, they certainly need understudies just on the horizon, and the new strategy would come in January 2024.”
He made sense of that the UK government surveys its visa charges consistently, and nothing that additions are taken when it turns into a need.
What the English government has concluded to do is they audit expenses constantly, and they’ve concluded that given the expense of handling visas, those costs that individuals applying for visas need to pay ought to go up too.
He encouraged people, in general, to constantly apply for a visa well in front of their planned ventures, taking note that there are cycles and time spans in allowing visas.
