Changes to user pays visa application centres on 1 September 2015

UK Visas and Immigration is converting a number of visa application centres to user pays centres.



From 1 September, applicants will pay a £52 fee to use the application centre, in addition to their visa application fee.



The fee will apply at all user pays centres and is a reduction from what is currently charged at existing user pays centres in nearly 100 other locations.



The affected visa application centres are:


  • Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia

  • Jalandhar, India

  • Osaka, Japan

  • Jinan, China*

  • Izmir, Turkey

  • Rostov, Russia

  • Dusseldorf, Germany

  • Zurich, Switzerland

  • Madrid, Spain

  • Rome, Italy

  • Warsaw, Poland

*Jinan will convert to a user pays centre on 1 October.



The £52 fee only covers the cost of operating application centres in these locations and ensures that customers do not have to travel long distances, or to another country, to apply for a visa.



The fee will apply to all applications submitted and paid for after midnight (UK time) on 1 September.
