UK Visas and Immigration has announced the reopening of select UK visa application centres in Indian cities from July 6, 2020.

The cities where the service will be available include Ahmedabad, Bengaluru (Global Tech Park), Mumbai, Chennai, Chandigarh, Cochin, Hyderabad, Jalandhar, New Delhi and Pune. Customers from cities, where the lockdown has been extended, are advised to refer VFS Global UK for updates.

VFS Global UK said in a statement, “Customers who were unable to attend an earlier appointment, will be able to log into their account to book a new appointment. Customers who have completed their application on GOV.UK, but didn’t previously book an appointment at the visa application centre, can do so from today.”

Owing to the ongoing restrictions still in place, global services such as super priority visa, priority visa service (visit), priority visa for settlement or migration service and walk-in services will be unavailable.
