Immigration Update: Reinstatement of representative service at the Public Enquiry Office

23 February 2012

Kingsley Napley is very pleased to announce that following a strong lobby by immigration law firms, including Kingsley Napley, the UK Border Agency has reversed its decision to remove the ability of immigration firms to have representative slots at the Public Enquiry Office (PEO) for same day processing of applications. This has been reinstated with immediate effect and we understand that 75 slots per day will be made available to firms at Croydon from 2 April.  In the interim the PEO will be dealing with applications over several weekends in March and representative slots will also be available in Liverpool and Sheffield.

We are currently awaiting further clarification on a few administrative details which we will update you on once known.

Changes to the UK visa services in Norway and Finland

On 5 and 8 March 2012 respectively, the visa application centres at the British Embassies in Oslo and Helsinki will close. These will be replaced with a visa service which will be available 3 times per week in partnership with WorldBridge Service.  A mobile biometric clinic will be set up in these cities to avoid applicants having to travel to another city.
