UK Visa Update: Introduction of compulsory biometric fingerprints for all immigration categories

16 February 2012

From Wednesday, 29 February, all visa applicants in the UK will need to obtain a biometric residence permit if they are applying to stay here for more than 6 months. To obtain a permit, they will need to enrol their biometric information (fingerprints and facial image).This will include UK settlement applications.

If you are applying for a visa in the UK on or after this date (whether applying by post, in person or online), you should use the correct application form. Please pay careful attention to the date shown on the cover of the application form.
