Unfortunately, we have temporarily halted the processing of UK visa applications, the reasons for this are:
  • The high number of applications currently being refused.
  • Due to the Volume of applications being received in the UK, some of the processing is done by British Offices that normally assess application from Asia. Officers working in Asia are much stricter when they assess the applications and refuse most applications, whereas an officer who is based in UK would have normally issued the visa.
  • The longer Processing times
  • The applications being processed are taking at least 8 weeks or longer, the normal processing time is usually 3 weeks, since Brexit there has been a delay.Another reason for the delay is the processing of applications form Ukrainian nationals entering the UK due to the war.
  • Limited appointments
  • The Ukraine Crises has caused longer waiting times in obtaining appointments at the visa centers. The typical waiting time for an appointment is 2-3 weeks.

We strive to offer the best possible service to our customers therefore, given the above points we would not be acting in the best interest of our customers if we carry on taking on application with the knowledge of the complications above.

We thank you for your patience and understanding and hope to resume services as soon as possible
