The UK has added a new perk to smartphone users as they can now apply for a visa into the country by a simple click on their smartphones, avoiding the stressful and tedious process of applying for it through the conventional means.
Tina Wamala who works in the British High Commission in Kampala as the communication officer has revealed that applying for a visa is now possible on mobile phones.
Users can upload documents via this service
According to her, this development will provide convenience to applicants. Going forward, applicants can now book center appointments as well as scan and upload all relevant documents while enjoying the comfort of their homes.
By this, the greater number of persons applying for a UK Visa no longer needs to submit their original documents. Applicants, however, are required to present their passports, so that if they were to be successful with their application, vignettes could be placed on them.
Wamala went further to explain that this mobile phone visa application innovation will make things easier for customers. They can now upload their supporting evidence and documents by themselves and in their own comfort. They can also select any other additional services that suit their needs and pay for them. The service enables the filling of application forms on tablets and smartphones making things easier for applicants and bringing convenience right down to their homes.
This service —especially the self-upload facility — will bring about an automatic improvement on how customers access to visa and immigration services.
Every year, the UK receives more than 3 million visa applications from applicants all over the world. The number of foreign nationals that visit the country yearly is at over 30 million.
This mobile visa application service will be fully ready and accessible by the end of this year.
