- Making a Paper Application
If you are normally a resident of the UK, Ireland or Ukraine, you may submit a paper application for a visa to the office in London. You must ensure that you submit a valid application. You must:
- Complete the correct form
- Provide supporting Documentation
- Send the application to the right address
If you do not follow these steps, your application may be invalid (and returned to you, take longer to process, or be refused).
All applications which are sent to London should include all the required documentation. This does not place a limitation on the case officer requesting further information or documentation from you.
Correct application form
A copy of the passport biodata page and status of UK residency status for each person included in the application. Please note, clients may also be requested to provide their actual passport during the processing of their application
UK clients should provide a pre-paid, self-addressed envelope size C5, large enough for the return of your documents. The London office will make alternative arrangements for the return of documents to clients in Ireland
