UK Backs Pedal on Visa Bond

June 25, 2013

Spokesman for Nigeria’s Foreign Affairs Ministry, Ode Ogbole, has disclosed that the United Kingdom has rescinded its decision demanding an entry bond of £3000 from Nigerians visiting the country.

Ogbole confirmed this to Daily Trust on Monday in Abuja through a text message when contacted on the matter. “It’s been rescinded,” Ogbole replied a text message sent to him by the newspaper, but however, declined to give further details when subsequently called.

It was also gathered from the report that “a message from the UK government rescinding the plan had been sent to the Presidency.”

On Sunday, news went viral in Nigeria on the purported travel cash bond to be demanded from Nigerian visitors to the UK as from November 2013.
