Online applications for the UK made easier

1 min read

The United Kingdom’s Home Office is committed to improving the UK Visas and Immigration service, by making it more convenient, quicker and easier for customers to apply for a UK visa. This includes improvements to the online customer journey, the introduction of new technology and the digitisation of services.

The UKVI is changing its service to allow customers to enjoy as smooth a visa application process as possible with changes to the Access UK service. 

Through Access UK, customers are now able to book their visa application centre appointment, scan and upload their supporting documentation from the comfort of their own home, and purchase any additional services which are intended to enhance their experience. 

Customers can continue to upload documents to support their application up until the day of their appointment. This exciting development means that the majority of
customers no longer have to submit their original documentation, though customers will still need to provide their passport in order for a vignette to be placed, should they be granted a visa.

Research and writing are two of Jeanette’s greatest passions, but she is always open to new challenges and different ways of doing things.
