INTRODUCTION OF NEW SCANNING PROCESS IN AUSTRALIA - NON-SETTLEMENT
From 30 January 2017, UK visa applications will be scanned at the visa application centre and sent electronically to UK Visas & Immigration for processing.
For a short transition period, original documents will still be sent to the UK Visas & Immigration Decision Making Centre in Manila. Once this period is over, documents will be handed back to the applicant straight away.
In order to avoid any delays at the UK Visa Application Centre, please follow the instructions below to ensure quick processing of your application. Failure to do so will result in delays at the visa application centre. Please bring original documents with you.
Applicants applying in Adelaide and Hobart: When you post your applications for processing at the visa application centre in Sydney, please ensure you follow the instructions above. If you are applying for the priority service, please ensure the priority receipt placed at the front of the application form.
Failure to do so will result in delayed processing.
