The new service is designed specifically for customers who want to sit back and relax while their visa application is taken care of, in the comfort of their home, office or any location of choice. The service is available to individuals and groups, such as corporate employees, or families, who prefer not to travel to the visa application centres to apply.
Instead, a small team will travel to the applicant’s chosen location to complete the biometric enrolment process (capturing fingerprint scans and a photograph). The service can be used to obtain long-term UK visas, popular with frequent travellers.
The cost of the service starts at GBP 750/QR 4,350 for an individual, with discounted bespoke pricing for groups, depending on size.
Srinarayan Sankaran, COO, Middle East, VFS Global, said: “This service signifies the next level of innovation and flexibility in visa application, while maintaining the integrity of the security aspects of the process. We are proud to partner with UK Visas and Immigration in developing and offering this service for applicants and truly believe it will redefine customer service and convenience for UK-bound travellers.”
