British High Commission to run Visa Application Centre in Malé this month

The British High Commission in Colombo is today accepting online bookings for the second Visa Application Centre to be held in Malé on August 27.

The optional one-day service which, for an additional fee, allows applicants who are resident in the Maldives to submit their UK visa application and biometric data using a mobile facility in the Maldives’ capital.

“This initiative will make it easier for Maldivians to submit their visa applications and biometric data for all visa categories, including students at this busy time of year,” said British High Commissioner to Sri Lanka and Maldives John Rankin.

“I hope that many Maldivians will make good use of this opportunity and apply online to meet the deadline.”

Applicants for all visa categories can book an appointment between now and  midday on August 25. The application centre is unable to process cash payments and visa fees must be paid online prior to the appointment.
