Online visa application

Committed to improving the UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) service, the Home Office has now rolled out its new online application service, Access UK – available in over 200 countries – in Kenya. A simple to use service, the app has been designed to help users with a quicker application process; featuring an easy-to-follow checklist and online payment capabilities.

The new online service has been designed based on customer feedback and replaces the Visa4UK website. 

A small number of customers will continue to use the existing Visa4UK service until all visa types are transferred to Access UK during 2019. Customers will be directed to the relevant application system from the gov.uk guidance page. 

Benefits to customers:

• Make quicker visa applications using an intuitive online form
• Use easy-to-follow checklists and steps which list the evidence required to make an application
• Conveniently select a standard, priority or super-priority service (where available)
• Apply flexibly using any mobile device

To offer greater convenience and flexibility to customers, the website will allow customers to transition smoothly from Access UK to booking their appointment on the TLS visa application centre website. Customers will also be able to self-upload their supporting evidence and will be able to easily select and pay for additional services to suit their needs.
