When you apply for a visa, settlement (‘indefinite leave to remain’) or citizenship in the UK, you’ll usually need to use UK Visa and Citizenship Application Services (UKVCAS).
Use UKVCAS to provide:
- your biometric information (fingerprints and photo)
- supporting documents for your application
You’ll be told if you need to use UKVCAS when you apply.
What you need to do
You’ll usually need to attend an appointment at a UKVCAS service point to provide your biometric information.
You can provide your supporting documents either by:
- uploading them into the UKVCAS online service
- having them scanned at your UKVCAS appointment
