UK Visa Centre To Move

The UK visa application centre in Phnom Penh is set to move to a new home. The move forms part of a shake-up to the service that comes with a hike in price.

From March 24, the UK Visa Application Centre will be based on the 10th floor of Phnom Penh Tower, Monivong Blvd. An additional $100 will be added to the cost of the visa fee to cover the cost of providing the new facilities and the return courier fee to the decision-making authorities in Bangkok. This is payable at the point of booking the appointment.

The move follows a global restructure of UK Visas and Immigration services to increase the number of visa application points and improve services globally, through commercial partner contracts.

The new visa application centre will be run by UK Visas and Immigration’s commercial partner VFS Global, who already operate UK visa application centres in a string of countries across Asia Pacific. The service also provides customers with access to value added services, including an SMS application tracking service.

The centre will be open to UK visa customers on Mondays and Thursdays from 8am to 5pm by appointment. For more information, visit www.vfsglobal.com
