How You Can Track UK Visa Application In Nigeria

Most times, we leave our country and travel to other places for leisure, vacation or even health issues. One popular place of interest Nigerians travel to is the UK. The UK is one of the most popular place for tourists, business travellers  including students. There are lots of things to see and do over there. Some countries have arrangements with other countries in their region for free passage, (or visa free) in order to improve trade and relations between both countries, while some countries will require the use of visa to enter.

Getting a visa in a country depends on their process, it has been shown that getting a visa in developed countries is much easier as all of their processes are done online. Most times, it is easier to process a visa in some countries than others. The country which you intend to visit also plays a role in how easy or difficult it would be to get a visa.
It should be known that getting a visa from developing countries to developed countries is more difficult.

The problem of getting a visa in developing countries is because many people who live in developing countries want to go to kthe developed countries to get a better life or in search for greener pastures. Most times, people from the developing countries apply for a short term visa, some even apply for a 3 days visa when they know that they wouldn’t be back very soon.


Many of these people from developing countries who apply for a 3 days visa and they know that they are not coming home, find it difficult to settle down and even get a job on time. Travelling to the UK without the appropriate documents is a big risk as you can be arrested and repatriated back to your country where you came from.
People who come from developing countries and refuse to go back home even after expiration of their visa, these sets of people become illegal immigrants in the country. Due to the illegal immigration state, most of these people turn to crime as their only way of getting themselves money, a place to survive, eat and sleep because they cannot get a job due to their illegal immigration status.

Applying for a visa becomes more difficult day by day because of high crime rate we are facing today. Nigeria is one of those countries where crime has become the root of everything. Most times, when they want to travel out of the country, they are being questioned very well and even after going through a long process, the visa might not be approved.

The diversion into crime has a negative implication on others who are seeking for visas, the embassy now believes that most people who travel there are not going there to have a better life in the right way, rather their main motive is to live a life that is full of crime, this has also costs others a lot because many who want to go there for better reasons might also be looked at in the same way, that they are also criminals like the others.
