Tourist Visa for the UK on SA passport


Recommended Posts


Travelling to the UK in Feb (if I get my new SA passport back in time!!!!). Has anyone in Perth applied for a Tourist Visa for the UK on their SA passport in Perth? Where do I go? Just thought I'd see if anyone's done it before I start phoning around to find out.

I had to get a visa last year and I completed the application on the internet. I was then given an appointment to go to the high commissioner here in Melbouren where they identified me and took my finger prints and took my passport. A week later I received my passport back in the post. It was very easy. Hope you have something like this in Perth

Thanks, yes, applied online and went into the city to have "biometric data" taken. Took 2 minutes. Posted visa off to Canberra and hope the nice people give me a visa and we can be on our merry way.
