The visa suspension affects applications from Nigeria and 10 Southern African countries on the UK’s covid-19 red list. Nigeria’s addition to the list today (Dec. 6) comes less than a week after first case of omnicron variant was found in the country. Ghana reported cases on the same day but is not on the UK’s red list.
Though the UK said the visa suspension is temporary (submitted applications will be responded to at some point), it draws attention to the fact that only African countries are on the UK’s red list for a variant spotted in at least 45 countries including developed European economies like Denmark where 183 cases were reported on Dec. 5.
