Question about UK visa shipping -

Can I hand deliver my UK visa application, including the biometric confirmation receipt, to UKVI in Manhattan, New York? (I live nearby.)

If not, should I just buy a round trip shipping label from UPS to the address below?

VFS Services USA Inc. UKVI Scanning Hub 750 Third Avenue Suite 946 New York NY 10017

Thanks very much.

  • How long did it take before you got your visa stamped? – Sundar Dec 14 '18 at 17:24

No, UKVI at the British Consulate New York is not open to the public, and visa applications are not accepted or returned in person, only by mail.

You can purchase shipping/return service independently or through VFS Global, following the directions in the application centre package.

  • This must have changed! I remember handing off my student visa in the UK consulate in NYC about 9 years ago – la femme cosmique Sep 20 '18 at 18:04
