IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? Applicants for Nigerian visas in India are now required to submit their applications in person and to enroll their biometric information. The Nigerian High Commission ordered the mandated biometric process Nov. 27.
What does the change mean? Applicants must now submit their visa applications in person and enroll their fingerprints and facial image at Online Integrated Solutions (OIS) centers in New Delhi and Mumbai. The change applies to all visa categories.
BAL Analysis: The new biometrics requirement adds another step to the application process for Nigerian visas submitted in India. Applicants should be sure to leave enough time in their schedules to book an appointment to submit their application in person and provide biometrics. Biometrics enrollment is a mandatory process to be completed when the visa application is submitted.
