Visa "Surgeries" are back soon.

These surgeries are to be re-introduced from 11th April all over the UK.

This is from asmithee who posts lots of information on indiamike.com and works for VFS.

Hopefully these will make visa applications easier in future. For more information see

indiamike.com/india/…

Brilliant news. I've never used the visa surgery before though I know plenty on here have. Think I would rather use a surgery if there's one local as it saves any chance of your passport 'disappearing' in the system. Thanks for the info.

Just yessssssss !!

How wonderful is this news, how much easier for all concerned, gives us a chance to meet up too !

The one at our sikh temple ( Leeds ) is so friendly, they even provide us with a free curry if it's lunchtime.

Poor old meerkat will be relieved to be semi redundant i guess lol

The post of India Mike is dated August 2008 unless am reading it wrong been on high commission and it does not say anything about reintroducing the surgeries. I am afraid you must be wrong. however if there is something i am missing then I woudl be very interested in visa surgeries again i thought they were great

Nope, still none for the south of England, bar Luton. Guess I'll still be doing it by post then.
