UK Visas

United Kingdom Visas and Immigration, which has the responsibility for issuing visas overseas, is introducing a change to its network as part of a larger change programme.

From January 26th 2015, applications for visas for the United Kingdom will be decided by UK Visas and Immigration in Bogota. This change will have no impact on the cost of applying for visas. Customers in Bolivia will continue to submit their applications and biometrics at the British Embassy in La Paz.

These changes will not affect the UKVI customer service standards.
