In a move to streamline the UK visa application process, the Home Office has teamed up with VFS Global to bring visa application services to hotels across India.

The innovative strategic collaboration, which will enhance the ease of applying for UK visas, involves the Indian Hotels Company, a subsidiary of Tata, and the Radisson Hotel Group.

Individuals seeking UK visas can conveniently submit their applications at select hotels, providing a more accessible and efficient application experience.

A closer look at the locations

VFS Global, a private company, has partnered with UK Visas and Immigration to deliver support services for individuals applying for visas to enter the United Kingdom.

Residents of the cities of Bengaluru, Mangalore and Visakhapatnam are among the first to benefit from the novel approach. Applicants can now submit their UK visa applications at designated Taj Hotels.

The Vivanta Bengaluru in Whitefield, Vivanta Mangalore on Old Port Road, and the Gateway Hotel in Visakhapatnam have begun offering the service.
