The United Kingdom (UK), of all the countries of Europe, is one country that can simply be described as a second home for many Nigerians. In fact, the Queen’s nation has so many Nigerians that walking on the streets of London, as experience has shown, sometimes feels like walking on the streets of Lagos or Aba. And the reason is simply—Nigerian local languages are spoken as if they are the indigenous languages there, but one should not be surprised because the population of Nigerian citizens living and working in the United Kingdom is large. Yet, many Nigerians are still looking to visit either for work, study, business or for other important reasons. This article has been written to help Nigerians locate the UK Embassy in Nigeria. Note that the UK embassy in Nigeria is known as the British High Commission in Nigeria.
The high commission, also called the embassy, is the head of the diplomatic mission of the United Kingdom in Nigeria. The high commission is at:
