UNITED KINGDOM: Further Improvements to the Visa Process For Chinese Migrants

The UK government is continuing to roll out improvements to the visa process for Chinese migrants and business visitors applying for a visa in China and has recently announced the introduction of two further improvements to the service.

The first is an extension to the mobile biometric service that allows applicants to give their fingerprints and details to visa staff who visit their office, to avoid the migrant or visitor having to go to a Visa Application Center.  This will be rolled out at all 12 of the regions served by visa application centers in China.

Further improvements include the roll-out of 24-hour visa processing for most visitor and worker visa categories.  The 24-hour Super Priority Visa service will be available to applicants in Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou for a fee of £600.  Where the 24-hour service is not available, applicants can use the three- to five-day priority visa service.
