The biometric capturing for US citizens who want to migrate to the UK has been put on hold for over two weeks. Some sources privy to the info surrounding this bureaucratic glitch confirmed that this suspension happened because the UK government did not make a payment it was supposed to make to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). US citizens who have been applying for visas to study, work or study in the UK have been rejected at application support centers in the United States where the fingerprints and photographs of applicants are captured. The Home Office of the UK termed the problem a ‘technical issue.’ The Home Office, however, did not give any more details on the matter. According to a source familiar with the issue, a payment from the UK was yet to clear before its deadline was up. For this reason, the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) suspended the service at the end of March. Applicants were given the option of taking a private route to apply.
