UK embassy to provide visa services at doorstep

People wishing to apply for a UK visa will now be able to use the On Demand Mobile Visa (ODMV) service which allows applicants who are resident in Dhaka to submit their UK visa application much closer to home, reports BSS. The Dhaka ODMV is part of UK Visas and Immigration's proactive approach to constant improvement in customer service, a British High Commission press release said here Monday. The ODMV uses the UK Visas and Immigration's mobile Biometric Enrolment System (BES) equipment to take biometric data like finger scans and digital photograph. This service is delivered by the UK Visas and Immigration's commercial partner, VFS Global. "UK Visas and Immigration seeks constantly to improve the service we offer. I am delighted to announce that the UK is the first country to launch the VFS Global mobile facility in Bangladesh. This service allows Bangladeshis to submit their visa application and biometric data outside our current network of Visa Application Centres," British High Commissioner Alison Blake said on the occasion. "For customers in Dhaka, it means they no longer have to travel to the Visa Application Centre in Dhaka to submit their applications," she added. On Demand Mobile Visa service is optional and applicants will have to pay an additional fee for the service.
