From 16 November 2011 all applications for a UK visa must be completed using UKBA’S online application system before going to the visa application centre in Kampala to submit a printed copy of the application form and biometric data (fingerprints and photograph). Appointments to submit applications at the visa application centre must be booked online when completing the online application form.
The visa application centre in Kampala will only accept applications from those who have applied and booked an appointment online. A ‘drop in’ service at the visa application centre will only be available to genuine emergency/time sensitive cases.
This is part of a wider change to allow almost all UKBA customers to apply for their visas online by 2013/14.
