UK suspends £3000 Visa Bond On Nigerians


United Kingdom has suspended its plan to impose 3,000 pounds visa bond on first time visitors from Nigeria.
It could not be confirmed if it has also suspended the policy in five other Commonwealth countries considered to be sources of “high risk” tourists to the UK.
The countries, where the country had, in June, proposed to implement the plan starting from November are Nigeria, India, Kenya, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Bangladesh.
An official, who spoke on condition of anonymity with our correspondent on Friday, said there had been no official communication from the home country on the visa bond which almost generated a diplomatic row between UK on one hand and the affected countries on the other hand.
He said, “We have not received any directive on the visa bond. This is an issue the two countries (Nigeria
and UK) have approached through diplomacy.
“The policy cannot be implemented now because there is no official communication on it.”
