BEWARE OF UK VISA APPOINTMENT SCAMS

Only book UK visa appointments through TLScontact.

TLScontact is the only official partner for UK Visas and Immigration in Congo.

Beware of other websites, companies or individuals attempting to sell UK visa appointments.

UK visa appointments are available for free at the TLScontact Visa Application Centre in Kinshasa, but there is a fee of £76.50 to use this Visa Application Centre.

TLScontact also provides some appointments for a fee. These offer additional flexibility or convenience. However, these paid appointments are all optional, and there are always free appointments available at other times or on other days. Please view the Added Value Services page for more information on the fees for these services.

TLScontact cannot guarantee that any appointments arranged through other companies or individuals will be legitimate or accepted when you arrive at the TLScontact Visa Application Centre.

Why do I have to pay an additional fee to use this Visa Application Centre?

In some locations where demand is relatively low, or where there are free to use options in the same country, an additional fee is charged to cover the provision of a user pays Visa Application Centre. This allows customers to attend an appointment at a more convenient location closer to their home. The user pays fee is a regulated fee set by the Home Office. Please find more information about UK visa fees here.



Passport Collection

You will be contacted by our Visa Application Centre when your passport is ready for collection. Please do not attend our centre until you have been invited to do so.

Please note that if you applied as part of a family group, decisions are made separately, and each person will be notified individually when their passport is ready for collection.

If you have applied through a third party, such as an agency or a solicitor, and used their email address on the visa application form, email notifications will go to this address. Please check with the third party if they received a notification about the passport being ready for collection. Do not visit the Visa Application Centre until you have received this email.

If you need to travel urgently, please contact UKVI for assistance. Please note that this is a chargeable service for overseas customers.
