UK VISA PROCESSING DELAYS UPDATE

UK VISA PROCESSING DELAYS UPDATE

In today’s video update, we will talk about the expected delays in UK entry visas due to global backlog

Please keep in mind that numerous applicants desiring to travel to the United Kingdom are suffering annoyances in getting UK entry visas.

With the UK Government having finally abandoned its “Red List” which has brutally impacted tourism and hospitality businesses in many nations, many tourists are again able to make discretionary trips to the UK.

Please keep in mind that applicants specially those not in possession of UK or European Union passports travelling to the UK are obligated to get visas that grant them entry in to England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The UK’s dropping of travel ban against 11 countries, including South Africa, means that a number of UK Visit visa applicants are again planning trips to the United Kingdom and now required to steer the bureaucracy this involves.

NOW LET’S TALK ABOUT EXTENSIONS ON CURRENT UK VISAS

Please keep in mind that there will be no pardon for visa holders whose UK visas expired during the periods of restricted entry. British High Commission has stated that no such extensions would be granted.

UPDATES ON DELAYS IN VISA PROCESSING

Presently, there is a build-up in the processing of UK visas. Travellers who plan to visit the UK and need to get entry visas, are recommended to apply well in advance as visa processing is obstructed because of a global backlog.

According to spokesperson, “UK Visas & Immigration (UKVI) are facing very high volumes of visa applications worldwide and are operating through current cases and new applications as quickly as possible”.

UK VISA APPLICANTS WARNED

Please note that the UKVI has advised travellers not to book and pay for accommodation or flight tickets before getting their passports with UK visas.

It further mentioned that, “Customers who desire to travel soon, should apply for their visit visa as early as possible. The UKVI advise all visa applicants not to make travel plans including booking flights until they get their visa”.

EXPENSES FOR UK VISA ENQUIRIES

Please keep in mind that telephonic enquiries regarding the status of one’s UK visa are charged in British currency. The difficulty and charges of speaking to anyone at UKVI could be navigated by querying through e-mail instead. There is a charge of £2.74 for requests sent by e-mail.

Furthermore, applicants are however instructed not to query the status of their visa applications except if needing to travel immediately.

The UKVI strongly suggest customers not to question about the status of an existing application unless there is a compelling or sympathetic emergency need to travel.”
