03 Jul COVID-19 guidance update
The Home Office updated the COVID-19 guidance on 2 July 2020:
Biometric data enrolment
If you have previously provided your fingerprints to the UKVI, the Home Office may be able to re-use your fingerprints as part of your new visa application. However, you will need to send a photo of yourself and scanned copies of your supporting documents.
In order to do so, the UKVI will email you with instructions on how to proceed.
This means that you will not need to attend a UKVCAS or SSC appointment to provide your biometric data.
If for any reason you are unable to provide your information once contacted by the UKVI, you will be asked to book a biometric appointment.
UKVCAS Service Status
UKVCAS has opened the booking system for migrants who registered with UKVCAS between 27 March 2020 and 30 April 2020.
The applicants will receive an email from UKVCAS before 4 July 2020 asking them to book a biometric appointment
