NEW DELHI: The British High Commission in India has advised travellers that due to a huge rush of visa applications, processing the same may take longer than usual and that people should make travel plans only after getting the visa.
“UK Visas and Immigration is experiencing very high demand meaning that, in some cases, it may take longer than usual to process visas. We encourage all new applicants to apply for their visa as early as possible and not make travel plans until you receive your visa,” it Tweeted Wednesday.
On April 23, 2021, UK put India on its red list during the devastating second wave here. This meant Indian citizens were not allowed to enter UK. And a handful of categories exempt from this restriction like British citizens/residents going from India needed to quarantine in a hotel on arrival in the UK for 10 days.
On August 8, India moved to the amber category of UK under which travellers fom India are now allowed without any need for a mandatory 10-day hotel quarantine.
