The British High Commission, on its website, said the new service was targeted at meeting the needs of those who require urgent service to travel.
The statement added that Paul Arkwright, British high commissioner to Nigeria, hailed the introduction of the super priority visa service in Nigeria.
“I am pleased to see the super priority visa service being launched in Nigeria,” he said.
“This comes with an additional cost but is designed to give greater flexibility to our customers and underlines our strong commitment to improving the visa services we offer.
“We expect this new service to be particularly useful for business. We understand that business opportunities and urgent requirements can arise at very short notice.
“We recognise this and want to facilitate such travel to the UK with this new super-fast service.”
“It is offered alongside our current Priority Visa (front of queue processing five to seven-day) and standard (15-day) services
“The UK is the only European country to offer a visa decision in 24 hours.
“The Super Priority Visa service is aimed largely at key business customers and those needing to travel urgently by providing a visa decision for collection at the Visa Application Centre the working day following submission.”
