The British Embassy's third periodic Visa Application Service will be held on 7 February 2014.

The British Embassy is pleased to announce its third mobile Visa Application Service on 7 February 2014.

This periodic UK visa application service in Vientiane means that residents of the Lao PDR no longer need to travel to Bangkok to apply for a UK visa.

Appointments are now open for the visa application clinic on 7 February. Subsequent visa service dates will be held approximately every 3 months.

The fee for this service is £75 in addition to the visa application fee. This additional fee includes the cost of sending the application and documents by courier to Bangkok and back to Laos after completion.

UK Visas and Immigration aim to process non-settlement visa applications within 15 working days and settlement applications within 12 weeks.
