UK providing visit visas within 15 days to travellers from India

The United Kingdom is back to processing visa applications within the standard of 15 days, with priority visas being processed within five days.

With an unprecedented surge in travel demand post pandemic, UK, like many other countries, has been grappling with immigration backlogs- forcing thousands of students, workers and tourists to reschedule their travel.

“Good news for those travelling from India to UK- visit visas now within standard time of 15 working days (with a small number of trickier cases taking longer),” British High Commissioner Alex Ellis said in a tweet.
