*Please include embassy fees, our service fees and return delivery payment or a completed air bill. Incomplete payment, incomplete applications or documents and wrong application form will cause a delay in processing the above visa application.

** The service fees are non-refundable, once we receive your documents and start processing them. Due to the high volume of applications being submitted, the processing times may be delayed by the Passport Agency. While such situations are beyond our control, we will do everything possible to accommodate your trip and will call you immediately to let you know about the status of your application
.

STEP 1. DETERMINE IF VISA IS REQUIRED AND START ONLINE APPLICATION FORM:


Click on the button below to get started. You will go through the online wizard to determine if visa is required for your nationality and purpose of travel. If yes, fill out online application and make payments directly to the UK government.





STEP 2: BOOK BIOMETRIC APPOINTMENT @ ASC


While filling out the online visa application, you will need to book an appointment for biometric fingerprints at the US Department of Homeland Security Application Support Center (ASC) . Make sure to choose ASC for biometrics so you do not have to show up in person at the application center in New York.

When you visit the ASC for your biometrics appointment, please take your current passport, a print out of your application form and a copy of your biometric confirmation receipt. You can print your receipt when you apply online.


STEP 3: GATHER SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS


Once you fill out and submit your online application form, you will be able to download "Document Checklist" from your online account. Make sure to put together copies of all documents that are required for your purpose of travel.


STEP 4. E-MAIL DOCUMENTS FOR REVIEW TO CS@IVSDC.COM



STEP 5: MAKE PRIORITY PAYMENT


If you choose standard processing, it will take 5-6 weeks to process your application. We strongly recommend using priority payment service that will allow to start processing your visa application right away and cut down the processing time to 7-10 days. Please note that certain nationalities will still take 15-20 days to receive the approval for a visa even with a priority payment. Please note: if you are having any issues processing priority payment, we can help you take care of it when we receive your original paperwork in our office. Additional fee of $335 will be added to your total. 





STEP 6: Send paperwork for processing to the TEMPORARY ADDRESS below:


  • Original Passport- must be at least 6mo. valid with 2-3 clear visa pages
  • Visa application form
  • 2 passport  photos
  • Supporting documents listed on the document checklist from your online account with UK government
