I made an online application to get a Standard UK visa (from outside of the UK). However, I made it too soon, 3 months and 15 days before the travel date. I read that, in this case, my visa will be refused. I'm not sure about this, but I'm thinking of cancelling it, and waiting until just 3 months before my trip, then doing a new application.

I already have an appointment, but I haven't paid for anything. I stated in my application that I'll pay on the day of my appointment at the Centre.

  • Is this possible?
  • Is it the best solution?
  • Will I be able to do this without paying for anything?
  • Will this affect the new application?
  • Can you reschedule it by three weeks? – user57303 May 20 '17 at 9:00
  • Yes, I think I can. Do you think that would solve the problem? Thank you – user61398 May 20 '17 at 11:21

Reschedule the appointment by three weeks. That should solve the problem. In your case you haven't already paid. If you had already paid you would be able to ask for a refund.

Per VFS Global FAQ

What should I do if I cannot attend the visa application centre on the appointed date?

If you cannot attend the visa application centre on the appointed date, you would need to cancel your appointment and apply for a full refund. Please refer to terms and conditions and refund policy. Refunds are at the sole discretion of VFS Global and will be in line with the refund policy.

  • This appears to be speculation. Do you have any references to offer in support? – phoog May 24 '17 at 15:12
