Access UK: New online application services live in South Africa
A new online application service has launched for customers in South Africa applying for a visa to visit the United Kingdom.
UK Visas and Immigration is committed to improving our service by making it more convenient, quicker and easier for customers globally to apply for visas.
Access UK (previously known as the Online Application Service) is already available in mainland China and India, and following its success UKVI is rolling it out globally to customers applying for a Standard Visitor, Visitor (Marriage & Civil Partnership), or Visitor (Permitted Paid Engagement) visa.
Access UK is a much more user-friendly online application process, designed to provide a simple and intuitive customer experience. The really great news is that the system works from your computer, tablet or Smartphone.
If you‟re applying for a visit visa in South Africa, the new service is live and you can use it right now! Access UK is available at www.gov.uk/apply-uk-visa or simply search online for „apply for a UK visa‟, and you‟ll be taken to the right page on www.gov.uk. Make sure you click on "apply using the new service".
Customers can use Access UK to apply for their visit visa, book an appointment at their nearest Visa Application Centre, and pay for their application using any of our standard, priority or super-priority visa services.
