Update 19 June: More UK VCAS centres will open through July
Sopra Steria, the company which runs the UK VCAS centres, updated their guidance on Friday 19 June. The updated guidance states that appointments are still mainly being provided to applicants who applied before the centres closed but new applicants should receive an email with information on changes being introduced to return to normal booking processes as soon as possible. They have also provided a list of when other UK VCAS centres should reopen.
Update 12 June: UK VCAS appointments are not yet available to new applicants
While the UK VCAS centres listed below opened as planned the Home Office have clarified that currently appointments are only available to those who had applied before the centres closed and whose appointments were cancelled or postponed. Those submitting new applications from within the UK are not yet able to book appointments but we hope that this should change soon when the backlog of applications is processed. You must still submit your visa application before your current visa expires, but as it will take longer to obtain a UK VCAS appointment the processing of your application will be delayed. We will provide further updates as soon as any further information is released.
