Interview

Visa application centre

You will also need to attend one of our visa application centers in person.

Most applicants must enroll their fingerprints and facial image (known as 'biometric information') at the visa application centre. This is a quick and clean process. In some countries, you must also show us that you have been screened for tuberculosis.

What happens next?

If your application is successful, you will get the visa.

If our visa officer cannot make an immediate decision on your application, we might ask you to attend an interview. We aim to do this within 15 working days from the date when the visa officer assesses your application.

We will refuse your visa if we find that you have given false or misleading information, or failed to give important relevant information. You could be banned from applying for a visa for 10 years.

If your application is refused, you might be able to:

  • appeal against our decision; or
  • request an administrative review, if you applied under the points-based system
