Access UK is a much more user- friendly online application process, designed to provide a simple and intuitive customer experience.

Customers can use Access UK to apply for their visit visa, book an appointment at their nearest Visa Application Centre, and pay for their application using our standard service, or priority or super-priority visa services (where they are available).

If you are applying for any other category of longer-stay visa, the process remains unchanged, and you still apply using the Visa4UK website.
