Kathmandu, July 28, 2016: The UK Visas & Immigration (UKVI) has launched a new online application form, making it easier for those in Nepal intending to travel to the United Kingdom to apply for UK visit visas.
The new form, called Access UK, offers customers a number of benefits including a shorter form, with questions ordered logically, a mobile friendly format and the ability to download a pre-populated Schengen visa form, according to a statement issued by the British Embassy in Nepal.
â€œThe UK remains committed to improving the visa service for customers and making it quicker and easier for customers to apply for UK visas,â€ the statement quoted Nick Crouch, UKVI regional director for South and Southeast Asia, as saying. â€œThe new form, known as Access UK, was successfully launched in China in 2014 and received excellent feedback from customers. We have further refined it and are now rolling it out globally. .â€
According to the embassy, the Access UK is available at www.gov.uk/apply-uk-visa. â€œHowever the Visa4UK website will continue to be available for visitors and for applicants applying visas on other routes,â€ added the embassy.
