Visa Appointment

It is a requirement that all visa applicants must attend the TLScontact centre in person as fingerprints are taken. TLScontact currently operates a centre in London, Manchester and Edinburgh.

 

Applicants will be required to attend the centre on the day of their visa appointment for their biometric details to be recorded; between 8:00am and 16.30 Monday to Friday. Applicants who do not attend the centre on the day of their appointment at the allotted time will be required to contact ALLvisa to book another appointment.  

 

The processing time quoted is approximate and cannot be guaranteed. The current waiting time for an appointment is 2-3 weeks. ALLvisa recommends that you apply no more than 90 days before your departure date.
