TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SERVICE

Upgrade your
visa application experience

TLScontact designed a variety of services to enhance your visa application experience. Upgrade your visa application experience by using one of TLScontact and/or UKVI services.


ALL OUR SERVICES

This website https://pos.tlscontact.com (the “Website”) is published by TLScontact.

TLScontact is an official service provider of UK Visas & Immigration (“UKVI” or “UK Visas and Immigration”), the sole government authority with power to decide on visa applications for the United Kingdom. TLScontact collects visa applications both through this visa application centre for UKVI (referred to hereinafter as “Visa Application Centre” or “VAC” or “TLScontact Centre”) and through the Website.

To contact us, please click here.



1. SCOPE OF APPLICATION

These terms and conditions of service (hereunder referred to as “Terms and Conditions”) apply without limitation or qualification to any and all service (hereunder referred to as “Service” or “Services”) offered by TLScontact on behalf of UK Visas and Immigration or on its own behalf to persons (hereunder referred to as “Applicant”, “Applicants”, “Customer”, or “you”, “your”) wishing to submit a visa application to UK Visas and Immigration through TLScontact and to the eventual provision of information by TLScontact concerning such visa application.

These Terms and Conditions concern, depending on the type of your visa application, the following services, comprising in particular:

  • the booking of your appointment at the VAC after completion of your visa application form on the GOV.UK website and payment of your visa fee to UKVI,
  • the submission of your visa application and of all supporting documentation (either through our assisted scanning service or through the self-upload service) in accordance with the requirements set out on the Website,
  • the enrolment of your biometric data (fingerprints and photo) unless you benefit from an exemption,
  • the transfer of your application to UKVI and,
  • the return of your travel document to the VAC.

These Terms and Conditions also govern the purchase by you of any and all optional services or products which TLScontact may provide in addition to the described above visa application services (hereunder referred to as “Added Value Service(s)”) for easy and comfortable submission of your visa application.

These Terms and Conditions may be consulted on the Website at any time. All amendments of these Terms and Conditions made from time to time shall be published on the Website. The amended Terms and Conditions, as displayed on the Website, shall prevail over any other previous version or over any other conflicting document.

In the absence of evidence to the contrary, the data recorded in the TLScontact information system shall constitute proof of all transactions entered with the Customer.

These Terms and Conditions shall be recognised as the contract governing the provision of Services between TLScontact and the Applicant. The Customer acknowledges that prior to submitting a visa application, he or she has read and understood these Terms and Conditions and agrees to abide by them, without limitation or qualification.

The Customer represents and warrants that he or she has the requisite capacity to contract and receive the Service offered by TLScontact.

These Terms and Conditions are not applicable to any and all services provided and/or decisions made concerning your visa application by UKVI, notably to UKVI regulated services, such as the Priority or Super Priority Visa Services (with or without settlement in the United Kingdom), the price of which is collected by TLScontact solely on behalf of UKVI or the collection by TLScontact solely on behalf of UKVI of additional fees charged to some visa applicants by UKVI.

2. ORDERS

To order any Service to be provided by TLScontact, the Applicant is required to complete the different steps such as further detailed here.

Applicants may, if available, purchase Added Value Services via the Website or at the VAC thus requiring an additional fee to be paid to TLScontact. Added Value Services are optional and do not guarantee that your visa will be granted or that your visa application will be processed in priority to other applications, except to the extent that you purchase a UKVI Priority or Super Priority service, in which case you should refer to the UKVI terms and conditions for any further detail concerning these services. A list of Added Value Services offered by TLScontact is published here.

TLScontact will only accept an order for the Services if the Applicant has previously confirmed, in such manner as TLScontact may determine, to abide by these Terms and Conditions prior to submitting his or her visa application. Such a confirmation constitutes the proof of the contract for provision of Services to You. A service booking shall not be deemed final until TLScontact has acknowledged acceptance of the order and has received full payment of the relevant fee.

TLScontact reserves the right to cancel or refuse any order in the event of a pending dispute with the Customer regarding the payment of a previous order.

3. PRICE

3.1 TLScontact Added Value Service Fee

The Added Value Services are provided at the current price as displayed on the Added Value Services page and at the VAC.

The price is inclusive of value-added tax and displayed in the currency of the country where the VAC is located, except for those VACs where the price may also be displayed in British Pound Sterling. The price is firm and non-revisable and includes all taxes, duties, fees and other levies imposed by local authorities. TLScontact reserves the right to change the price at any time in the case of all orders placed after the effective date of a price revision.

TLScontact will issue the Customer with an invoice upon payment of the order for Added Value Services placed with TLScontact.

The Customer expressly acknowledges and agrees that the price of some Added Value Services, such as the On Demand Mobile Visa Service, cannot be determined in advance, as it will depend on factors that cannot be known in advance, including but not limited to the venue of the appointment requested by the Customer other than a TLScontact Centre, the timing of the appointment, number of applicants, etc.

Except if otherwise stated in our refund policy here below, the Added Value Service fees are non- refundable and non-transferable once the Added Value Service is completed, whether or not a visa is ultimately granted to you by UKVI or whether or not you decide to withdraw your visa application.

3.2 UKVI visa fees, UKVI optional services fees and UKVI additional mandatory user pay fees

The amount of all of these above-mentioned fees is determined exclusively by UKVI. TLScontact has no control over, and does not accept any liability whatsoever for increases or amendments to these UKVI fees. These fees are stated including value-added tax in British Pound Sterling, in EURO or in the relevant local currency.

Generally speaking, these fees are paid directly to UKVI, except for service fees which TLScontact is authorised to collect from Applicants for and on behalf of UKVI.

If you have a question regarding the refund of the aforementioned fees, you should consult the UKVI general terms and conditions of service by clicking on the following UK Visas and Immigration terms and conditions of service. TLScontact accepts no claims for the refund of such UKVI fees which are not to be addressed to TLScontact.

5. PROVISION OF SERVICES

TLScontact undertakes to use its reasonable endeavours to provide the Services to Applicants depending on the appointment date that they have chosen.

TLScontact will process all visa applications with reasonable care and skill and in accordance with all the procedures prescribed by UKVI.

TLScontact does not guarantee that any error on your visa application form will be detected as we do not undertake to verify any information you provide. You are responsible for ensuring that all the information and documentation you provide is accurate, true and up to date.

TLScontact accepts no liability whatsoever arising from any delay in the provision of the Services caused by any event or by any third party, which is beyond the control of TLScontact.

The timeframe for a decision on your visa application from UKVI is outside of the influence of TLScontact and cannot be guaranteed by TLScontact. Making use of the Priority or Super Priority visa service, where applicable, will not guarantee that your visa application will be expedited or processed more quickly. Applicants are recommended not to make bookings related to their travel prior to receiving a decision on their visa applications. If Applicants are required to make such bookings in advance, they should consider a reasonable timeline for the processing of their visa applications prior to making such bookings.

Applicants bear responsibility to carefully read and understand the requirements set out in the visa application forms, complete them truthfully and with correct and accurate information, to provide the correct supporting documentation, to ensure that they have a valid passport (not damaged or expired) as well as to check the validity of the visa issued (including with regard to the period, number of entries, purpose etc.) when they receive it.

Applicants shall provide valid contact details to TLScontact in order for TLScontact to contact them in case any issue arises with their visa application or if additional documentation is required. TLScontact accepts no responsibility for any losses arising from an inability to contact an Applicant due to a lack of contact details provided, or in the event that an Applicant’s mobile phone is switched off, disconnected or not equipped with voice mail.

6. RIGHT TO CANCEL ADDED VALUE SERVICES SOLD ONLINE

Firstly, the Customer is expressly advised that the price of Added Value Services paid to TLScontact cannot be refunded on the grounds that UKVI has refused the visa application or that the Customer has decided to cancel the visa application after having submitted the application, once the procedure is underway.

Secondly, the Customer is expressly advised that any and all visa application fees paid to UKVI or paid to TLScontact solely for and on behalf of UKVI are not subject to a right of cancellation with TLScontact and any refund request for such visa application fees is to be addressed solely to UKVI, such as already mentioned in clause 3.2 here above.

TLScontact fees are non-refundable and non-transferable once the Added Value Service is completed or once your visa application has been transferred to UKVI.

6.1. Online purchase of Added Value Services

6.1.1 The Customer is expressly advised that the right of retraction exists only for orders of Added Value Services placed exclusively via the TLScontact Website, to the exclusion of Added Value Services sold at a TLScontact Centre.

For online purchases, the Customer has a cooling off period of 14 days, starting the day after the date on which the sale contract is entered into, to exercise his or her right of retraction vis-à-vis TLScontact and to cancel the order, without having to justify such cancellation or pay any penalties. To duly exercise this right of retraction, the Customer must notify the Service Provider of his or her decision to cancel, before the end of the aforementioned cooling off period, using the cancellation form that may be downloaded here, or by any other notification devoid of ambiguity, sent by post to our registered address, or to our Contact Us page, citing the order the Customer wishes to cancel.

If the right of retraction is exercised within the aforementioned period, solely the price for the Services ordered shall be refunded to the Customer, no later than 14 days after TLScontact has received notification of the Customer’s decision to cancel.

The Customer is advised that, given the specific nature of the Services and the time required for them to be performed, some of the foregoing provisions may not be applicable. The Customer is invited to take note of all of the points mentioned in clause 6.1 below in order to fully understand the circumstances liable to render the right of retraction inapplicable and/or limit the refund.

6.1.2 The Customer is advised that:

  • If the provision of an Added Value Service has commenced with the Customer’s agreement and has been completed before the end of the 14-day cooling off period, the Customer shall not be entitled to exercise the right of retraction, which he or she expressly waives.
  • If the provision of a Service has commenced with the Customer’s agreement before the end of the 14-day cooling off period but has not been fully completed by the time the Customer sends notification of his or her decision to cancel within the aforementioned 14-day period, the Customer will be liable to pay all expenses corresponding to the Service provided until notification of the Customer’s decision to cancel.
