UK launches priority visa service in Nepal

People in Nepal who would like to apply for a UK visitor visa can now apply using the new priority visa service.

For an additional fee of NPR 7000 (including taxes), the Immigration and Visa Service will prioritise the visa application and return the documents in six working days.

This service can only be used by those applying for a visitor visa and have travelled without difficulty in the last five years to one of the following countries: UK, USA, Australia, New Zealand, Canada or a Schengen country.

Visa applicants are advised to schedule an appointment in advance as there is a limited allocation of priority visa slots each day.

Customers with a normal online appointment can use the priority service without a separate appointment only if there are unallocated slots available.

Using the priority visa service does not guarantee that the visa application will be successful. All applicants must meet the requirements of the UK's Immigration Rules.

“If you have been refused a visa for any one of the countries mentioned above or overstayed their visa to the UK or been removed or otherwise been required to leave the UK, the processing of your application is likely to take longer than our visa processing times, and is unsuitable for the priority visa service,” said the Immigration and Visa Service.
