The British High Commission in conjunction with the United Kingdom Border Agency yesterday announced a temporary delay to the change in its internal processes for assessing visa applications.

According to a press release sent yesterday to The Point, the British High Commission said the change to its processes will now start on Monday 28th February.

"Appointments to submit applications are now available up to, and including Thursday 24th February. These appointments can be accessed via online module www.visa4uk.fco.gov.uk," the release added.

The release further stated that all visa applications completed online by 24th February must be accompanied by an appointment to submit the application by that date; adding that failure to do so will result in a new online application being required.
