Processing times increase at some UK posts abroad

23 June 2011

The UKBA warned recently that visa processing times at some of its posts abroad are currently longer than their published time-scales.

Delays are being experienced in Russia in relation to all types of visa application, in Pakistan and India due to an increase in Tier 4 (Student) applications and in China a large number of visitor visa applications means these are taking longer to be processed than normal. Those anticipating needing to apply for a UK visa should submit their applications as early as they are able to in these countries, up to a maximum of three months before their intended travel date.
