Changes to user pays visa application centres on 1 September 2015
1 SEP 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
*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.
