UK visas for Pakistanis issued faster
All UK visa applicants can benefit from the new facility located in Karachi where a UK visa can be issued within 15 working days on receipt of a complete application with relevant documents. The premium service should lead to faster services to the business community in Pakistan and also make it quicker and easier for Pakistani people to obtain visit visas to attend upcoming UK events like the golden jubilee celebrations of Queen Elizabeth II and the London Olympics.
The service includes a dedicated lounge for visa applicants that provides a personalised service for the submission of their applications and passports for visa processing. UK visa applicants can also receive free SMS alerts regarding the status of their UK visa application.
The added service is in response to a substantial increase in the number of visa applications received by the UKBA from Pakistan in 2010. In 2010, the UK Border Agency received close to 100,000 applications from Pakistani nationals.
