Visa processing cannot resume until Visa Applications Centres reopen. The decision to reopen these is taken in conjunction with our commercial partners and is subject to the easing of restrictions in locations by host Governments and our ability to provide an effective service in that location. As centres reopen details of these will be published on our commercial partner websites.

We continue to work with the NHS to identify and assist essential workers. NHS staff can contact the UKVI NHS Team by emailing and the team will seek to assist them.
