After priority and super priority visa services for Indian students, now a more effective and streamlined process has been introduced after reports of visa issues leading to trip cancellations.

Vikram Doraiswami, the Indian High Commissioner to the UK, officially opened the new India Visa Application Centre (IVAC) in Marylebone, which VFS Global will run, a company, that offers outsourcing and technology services to governments and diplomatic missions.

As many as 40,000 appointments are now scheduled each month due to the cooperation with VFS. A facility in the heart of London is being built to process visas, enhancing accessibility and assisting groups of people flying together to the same destination. A visa at-doorstep service would also be available to tourists for a cost. Following concerns about visa delays that have forced travellers to terminate their trips, such actions have been taken. 

The chance to obtain priority and super priority Visa services was made available to Indian students who wanted to study abroad earlier in August. The UK government made a decision on the student’s visa application under the Priority Visa service in less than five days. In addition, the Super Priority service guarantees that requests will be fulfilled by the end of the following business day.

With 10 IVACs running across the UK in Belfast, Birmingham, Bradford, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow, central London, Hounslow, Leicester, and Manchester, the new centre is the third India visa centre in London.
