Important advice to customers about UK visa application process delays. 11-May-09

Dear Friends

Following is the latest news posted at Garry’s website about the timeline for visa applications.

Customers, please note that there are currently significant delays in the UK visa application process. You are advised to apply for your visa well in advance of the intended date of travel.

The delays are due to the high volume of customers making appointments at the visa application centres (please refer to the update of 27 April regarding appointment bookings) and to technical difficulties affecting the UK’s global visa operation, which UK Visa Services are working to resolve.

At the moment please allow approximately 7 weeks from the time you make a request for an appointment to collecting your visa decision. UK Visa Services apologise to customers for the inconvenience, and confirm they are working to reduce these delays.
If you require further information, please contact Gerry’s at or telephone the call centre on 0900 10411 or using mobile short code 8865 (open Monday – Saturday 0800 – 12 midnight)

Please note that these are premium numbers and charged at a rate of PKR 10 per minute.

06 May 2009: UK Visa Application Centre at Mirpur is now open. Please see the address details in the ‘contact us’ page of this website.
