Priority UK visa service extended to business visitor applicants and seafarers in Philippines

All business visitor and seafarer applicants in the Philippines are now eligible to use UK Border Agency’s priority visa service.

The UK Border Agency said they are changing their eligibility criteria so that their priority visa service can be accessed by a General visitor or a Family visitor who has travelled in the previous five years to the UK, the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand or a country in the Schengen area.

The priority service is available to those eligible applicants who pay an additional fee to have their visa application processed ahead of others.

The UK Border Agency aims to process all applications using the priority service within 3-4 working days of receiving them.

For more information about this service, please see the VFS website.
