I hold a nigeria passport with UK visa on it.I am coming on vacation with my family and am 26weeks old.plan to spend 10days.However donot minD paying for a health insurance card for a guarantee that would not access public funds incase of emergencies even though my pregnancy is not a highrisk.
Thank you.If you have a valid UK visa already, that does not guarantee you entry to the UK especially if the Immigration officer feels that you are not coming for a genuine visit.I suggest you take out comprehensive health cover, a return ticket, proof of accomodation for the 10 days visit in the UK, a letter from your doctor in Nigeria saying you are okay to travel and that arrangements have been made for your delivery in Nigeria. Keep all these documents in your hand baggage.Hope this helps. Please rate my answer
