Re-entry visas

Re-entry Visa On-Line Appointments

In order to streamline services it has been decided to operate a single channel for re-entry visas using the postal system. The “over the counter” system has now ceased (since 3rd September 2018). However, facilities for emergency appointments will continue and will be flexible to cater for genuine emergencies, including those who need to travel at short notice, for example in the case of a family emergency.

Customers are advised to submit their postal applications 5 to 6 weeks prior to travel to be sure their documents are returned in good time for travel. Every effort is being made to minimise processing times as much as possible.
