Sopra Steria pledge to offer applicants the option to arrange an appointment within five days at any of our core service points, located in Croydon, Cardiff, Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow and Belfast. UKVI continue to work closely with Sopra Steria to review appointment availability across all locations.

Data on the number of days that no appointments have been available in UK Visa and citizenship applications service centres outside of London since November 2018 is not readily available. This information could only be provided by interrogation of individual service centres on a day by day basis, which could only be achieved at disproportionate costs.
