UK is reforming its Visa processing facility in India, which is expected to reduce the waiting period for the British Visa from present 15 days to 10 days. The new system is slated to be implemented soon.
Sanjay Wadvani, British Deputy High Commissioner for Eastern India said, “We have simplified our Visa process and most of the rejections are due to incomplete application forms which we receive. In the next week or two, the waiting period for a UK Visa will come down to ten days.”
In 2009, there were more than 4.25 lakh UK Visa applications from India and over a million visitors travel between India and UK annually.
