How Much is UK Visa in Nigeria
One cannot categorically assert that a particular price is the exact price. The reason is this:
The cost of UK visa fees all depends on the type of visa and the duration you want to stay in the United Kingdom.
Different categories of people will pay different kinds of fees. For instance, for different visitors such as students, businessmen, married couples etc, have to pay different fees.
The duration also. Someone who will stay for 5 months would not pay as high as someone who would stay for 2 years.
The embassy stated that Nigerians will have to pay a non-refundable fee for the visa whether or not it is granted. Take note of that.

There are some special Nigerian citizens who are not allowed to pay for visa to the UK. These ones are officially invited by the Government of the UK on diplomatic basis. They are the Diplomatic Passport Holders.
As you can see that the various visa fees are currently in US dollars. We advice that you visit your bank to find out how much the price will be in Naira as these prices are affected with the current dollar exchange rate.
Although you can apply for the UK visa in Lagos at Victoria Island or even at Ikeja, bear in mind that these UK visa fees is dynamic and can change at any point in time.
