Change in UK Visa Application Process

The Home Office have started notifying some UK  Visa applicants of a change to the application process due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic.

UK Visa applicants in the UK have been unable to complete their visa applications due to  the closure of application centres where they would usually  submit their biometrics. This  would usually involve having fingerprints and a photograph taken.

Some applicants in the UK who have previously submitted biometrics as part of their visa applications have been contacted by the Home Office to confirm that they will not be required to attend  biometrics appointments.

It is expected that an app will be produced  that will allow them to provide a photograph.

The previous app released for EU applications for the EU Settlement Scheme was initially provided only on Android devices.

It is not yet clear when this process might start and how supporting documents will  be provided to the  Home Office.
