Email address to apply for UK student visa appointments
From Monday 21 December 2009, customers who want to submit student visa applications to the visa application centre in Colombo are required to make a prior appointment, a press release from British High Commission said.
Those applicants they are requested to send their applications between 8.00 a.m. to 3.00 p.m. Monday to Friday to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any one who wants further information about making an appointment can reach through www.vfs-uklm.com.
Email appointments should be asked only if you hold a valid Visa acceptance letter.
The press release says, "when you request an appointment please supply your full name, passport number and contact number. In addition, the appointment must be made in the name of the applicant who will attend the visa application centre to submit the application. It is not possible for appointment details to be changed once made or for another person to attend the visa application centre. You must make one request for an appointment only. (multiple requests are likely to result in you not receiving an appointment).
"It is not possible to obtain an appointment by visiting or telephoning the visa application centre.
"You will receive a response to your request within 3 working days. You will be allocated the first available appointment.
"It is important that the student visa application form is completed fully and all documents are assembled before the applicant attends the visa application centre by appointment. Applicants will be permitted to enter the visa application centre only if they possess the completed visa application form, passport, the visa fee, other supporting documents and a copy of the appointment confirmation email from VFS.
These arrangements have been introduced to improve the visa service and reduce waiting times for all customers.
