I'm applying for an Exemption Vignette Visa for the UK from Italy. I made a mistake and I need to start over. I'd like to cancel the current application (I still have to bring the requested documents to the application center) but in order to do so I need to send a cancellation request and I have to pay for it.

Unfortunately, my cards are not accepted. My question is: is the visa application going to expire anyway? Or should I really cancel it? On the website it is written that the application form is available to download until February 2020, so I assume they cancel these incomplete applications anyway.

    What sort of mistake did you make? You may be able to point it out and have something altered instead of cancelling it completely – Uciebila Oct 15 '19 at 17:06
  • @Uciebila I believe I would still have to contact them and thus have to pay for it! It’s strange that they don’t simply automatically delete old applications, though. – wrong_path Oct 15 '19 at 17:08

If you have submitted your application

If you have submitted your application you should pay tour fee which can later be refunded.

2 ongoing visa applications won’t be allowed.

The UK GOV website states:

Contact UKVI to find out how to cancel your application.

You can only get your fee refunded if your application hasn’t been processed yet.

If you haven’t submitted your application

If your application hasn’t been submitted you can just start again and if asked just say you made a mistake.

    I did not pay anything as this type of Visa is free of charge. Nonetheless, I submitted it to the point that I now have to take an appointment with the commercial partner in my home country to submit the requested documents. The problem is that I don't really know how to pay for the request to cancel the current application. – wrong_path Oct 15 '19 at 16:12
  • @wrong_path I think you can just leave it, make a new application and if asked say you made a mistake – Xnero Oct 15 '19 at 17:23
