UK Visa Application Centers Service to resume soon…

VFS Global is the official partner of the UK Visas and Immigration services. It is a known fact that the services of UK Visa Application Centers/VFS Global were put on a halt around the world due to the outbreak of COVID 19 from the last week of March 2020.

Earlier in the month of May, the UK Home Office and its partners have announced that they are starting to resume UK visa and immigration application services again as soon as the local restrictions allow. It is understood that only applicants who have already booked an appointment to attend a UK Visa Application Centre and who have had their appointment deferred will be able to progress their applications at this stage. Where services are resuming, such applicants will be contacted and told what to do next. It is not currently possible to book a new appointment at a UK Visa Application Centre.

Applicants, who were unable to attend an earlier appointment, will be able to log into their account to book a new appointment. Applicants who have completed their application on the website GOV.UK, but have not booked an appointment earlier at the Visa Application Centre, can do so from now on.
