UK to relocate Visa Application Centre to New Delhi

Recommended Posts

Now don't worry the title indicates a long trip to Delhi for the application but according to the link it is only the decision making part that is being relocated. Business as usual if I read it right, still apply via Bangkok and Chiang Mai for the handing in of docs etc during appointment.

just seen this on facebook.WTF.??

Just read the actual wording, it doesn't affect application processing, it is just the decision making removed from Bangkok to New Delhi. There will be no delays to turn around times.

Indians are better in English than thai people and probably work for less.

that is what I thought and hoped.thanks for the clarification,they really have out sourced everything now,while I hasten to add,raising the cost of everything.when I did it it was direct at the embassy.sign of the times I guess.the wrong thing to do in my book.

When I first saw the advisory I got worried but after reading every word it is indeed another outsourced scenario.  Now they say it won't affect times of turn around etc but only once implemented will it really offer a positive or negative view of the move.

The VFS in Bangkok only do preliminaries before the docs/application gets passed to the embassy staff, I assume now the pertinent docs will be sent electronically and of course the application form has already been filled in online.

It is just the processing of Visas that will be done in New Delhi Matt. Many large banks use services in India for processing accounts which is uploaded and downloaded back and forth and of course more and more large UK businesses are moving their call centres abroad especially to India   It will make no difference to other services, like you say, British in trouble, replacing lost or stolen passports etc

It is possible that it may even speed up the Visa process. We will have to wait and see

indeed we will.the labour is cheaper,but the fees are up.my ears are certainly pricked.the posh hiso embassy in Bangkok is fooked and out of touch of its citizens who pay their wages.

All big companies, government, armies tend to more and more outsource things, if not de facto privatise some parts of the job

Hence the numerous call centers in India and the Philipines for example..

Availability of cheap English speaking labour is a big motivation !

Yes sadly it is Broken Britain 🇬🇧 I am very disappointed with what it’s become , the lack of strategic thinking by our political leaders I find astounding,  the place is being sold off it will go bankrupt,  the NHS in a mess border control appalling , the crime in London going though the roof ...

And the media says ban Trump , it’s like a sketch from the Office...

Seeing the investment in Thailand the last decade or so and the decline of UK at any measure is amazing but as a Brit very sad 😞

Yes, seem to be worse and worse... I just read that during Macron's visit in the UK some UK officials raised the idea of a giant bridge between UK and France... 

I suggest we wait a 100 years to first pay of the Eurotunnel ?

Yes the UK is declining by the hour , we are borrowing a shed load more , like a ponzi scheme , the level of benefit fraud and health tourist fraud will never be published, nor the crime increase due to overseas scum...

The future of the British people is alarming ... many have head in sand and can’t see it but it’s coming like a rocket 🚀
