Coronavirus and the UK immigration system (as of 02 July 2020)
Application and Service Centres in the UK
If you have given your fingerprints before
Since 02 July 2020 if UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) can technically reuse the fingerprints you have already given, you will be emailed with instructions on how to send them an image of your face and your supporting documents.
This will mean you do not have to attend a UKVCAS or an SSC service point appointment to provide biometric information.
If you cannot send the information through the instructions given, you’ll be able to book an appointment.
If, however, UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) cannot technically reuse them, no further instruction will be sent to you and you will need to book an appointment to submit biometrics in a standard way.
