UK same-day visa service now in Chennai
Bangalore: The United Kingdom has launched the same-day visa service (Super Priority Visa service) for people in south India.
The service that was hitherto available in Delhi and Mumbai will be available in Chennai from Tuesday. The Super Priority Visa Service is a first-class service to facilitate urgent travel. It complements the UK’s Fast Track Service and Online Payment options.
The new service is available to customers applying for a six-month to a two-year multiple entry visit visa (excluding student visitors) who have previously travelled to the UK, the USA, Australia, New Zealand, Canada or a Schengen country in the past five years. It is also available to visa applicants sponsored by companies that are members of UK Home Office’s Business Express Programme.
The Super Priority Visa Service is an optional service and incurs an additional fee. The fee for the Super Priority Visa Service is `57,000 at current rate, plus the standard fee for the type of visa being applied for. Applicants must complete an online form and submit their applications, by appointment, before 9.30 am at the Visa Application Centre in Chennai. This applies to customers outside Chennai as well.
Customers using this service will have their passport and the decision on their visa by 5.30 pm the same day. Further information about the fees, eligibility criteria and how to schedule an appointment is available at http://vfs-uk-in.com/additionalservice.html.
