Changes to online visa payments in Lebanon

Applications for a UK visa made in Beirut can only be paid for online from Mid December using a credit or debit card.

From 16 December 2013 applications for a UK visa in Lebanon will be completed and paid for using our online application and payment system, before going to the visa application centre 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.

Payment is made online by using Visa or MasterCard debit or credit cards only as of mid December. Please ensure the payment method has sufficient funds available before attempting application and payment.

This is part of a wider change to allow almost all our customers to apply and pay for their visas online by 2013/14.
