A Premium Application Centre offering personalised services for UK visa applicants, enabling them to submit UK visa applications at short notice, has been opened by the UK Home Office’s commercial service provider VFS Global, in Houston, Texas.
Customers applying for work, travel or study visas for the UK can now have their visa applications considered within 24 hours following submission of applications at this new Application Centre.
The new services are expected to be of particular interest to personnel from the Technology and Energy industry, students and business travellers among other professionals travelling to the UK. The Centre in Houston is the latest to be launched for UK visa applicants after positive response to similar centres opened in New York, Washington, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, San Francisco and Boston.
Commenting on the new centres, Anil Katoch, COO – Americas & Caribbean, VFS Global, said, “The Premium Application Centres are convenient for UK-bound travelers in New York, Washington, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, Boston, San Francisco and Houston, who will for the first time be able to get their visas processed within 24 hours. These centres cater to the growing demand for more personalised services for customers who have to make unplanned journeys to the UK or who are under time constraints.”
