Dhaka : Residents of Dhaka wishing to travel to the UK can now apply for their visas from the comfort of their home or office with VFS Global' s On Demand Mobile Visa (ODMV) service.

This service is specially designed to cater to applicants' convenience by providing a doorstep service with personalised assistance for visa submission, including biometric enrolment.

For applicants who opt for a mobile visa service, VFS Global's trained personnel will travel to applicants' preferred location to accept the visa application and enrol biometrics on the spot.

This popular premium service meets the needs of travellers who would like to opt for highly personalised services, while also eliminating the need to visit a Visa Application Centre.

Michael Lutz, Regional Manager, UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) launched the service at a ceremony held in the city on February 18.

Speaking about the new service, Alison Blake, British High Commissioner in Dhaka said, "UK Visas and Immigration seeks constantly to improve the service we offer. I am delighted to announce that the UK is the first country to launch the VFS Global mobile facility in Bangladesh."

"This service allows Bangladeshis to submit their visa application and biometric data outside our current network of Visa Application Centres."

For customers in Dhaka, it means they no longer have to travel to the Visa Application Centre in Dhaka to submit their applications. Bangla-desh and Britain are close friends and partners and this development is a further step in enabling stronger people-to-people relationships."

Vinay Malhotra, Chief Operating Officer - Middle East and South Asia, VFS Global said, "We first launched the mobile visa service for UK visa applicants in April 2016, and the service has seen tremendous success ever since."

"We are pleased to bring this service to Dhaka, thereby offering one of our fastest growing markets one of our most successful solutions. We are positive that the mobile visa service will redefine convenience for applicants in Dhaka."
