A temporary centre has been set up in the Maldives to process UK Visa applications.

The temporary centre situated at the Foreign Ministry building, began accepting visa applications today – and will continue to do so until August 4.

It was noted that the applications of those who have made prior appointments will also be accepted at the centre. Additionally, biometrics enrollment services will also be provided at the centre.

The temporary centre was set up by the UK government at the request of the Maldivian government. Foreign Ministry noted that this centre will ease the difficulties faced by Maldivians travelling to the UK – especially that of visa related matters of local students travelling to the UK for their studies.

Foreign Ministry also added that the temporary centre falls under the efforts by the Ministry to enhance and strengthen consular services provided by the Ministry to the people of Maldives.
