Important notice for Ukraine Scheme visa applicants: If you are outside the UK and hold a valid Ukrainian international passport or hold an expired Ukrainian international passport that contains an official passport extension stamp endorsed by the Ukrainian government (including embassies or consulates), you will no longer need to provide your biometric information from overseas to apply to the Ukraine Scheme. You will still need to complete an application online and upload a digital scan of your valid Ukrainian international passport, but you will not need to attend an in-person appointment at a visa application centre. Please find more information on GOV.UK.

Our Visa Application Centre in Chisinau is open for new visa applications.

Travelling to the UK

Please check the latest information on travel to England from another country during coronavirus (COVID-19) before applying for your visa.

Separate guidance is available for travellers entering Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Due to the ongoing impact of Covid and global travel restrictions, UK Visas & Immigration are experiencing unpredictable demand across all visa routes. Further information on current processing times for standard visit visas can be found here.

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.

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


In order to comply with local Covid-19 health and safety regulations, you may be required to provide a body temperature reading, wear a mask and respect social distancing guidelines to enter our centre. Where local regulations apply, you may also be required to provide evidence of Covid-19 test results or vaccination status.

Watch the video.

Customers exhibiting Covid-19 symptoms, including fever, cough or difficulty breathing will be helped to reschedule their application submission for another day and will be advised to seek medical attention at the nearest healthcare facility of their choice.
