    Default Potential UK VISA future digital process

    Hi all.
    Just for info today I have seen the below posted on UKVI latest news sector about streamlined visa processes and uploading documents.
    It sounds a bit similar to what they started doing at VFS in Bangkok.
    I work in an organisation that moved from paper to digital files and it works well until the system crashes or goes down for maintenance.

    Sopra Steria has been awarded a new UKVI contract

    Sopra Steria has been awarded the contract to deliver a new service for people applying for a work or study visa, settlement or citizenship from within the UK, the Immigration Minister announced today (Thursday 17 May).

    The new service will deliver a more streamlined application process from over 60 locations across the UK, including 56 local libraries.

    Under the new arrangements people using the service will be able to submit biometric information including photos, fingerprints, and signatures and their supporting evidence at a single appointment. The evidence will then be copied and sent to UKVI, meaning that people won’t have to hand over important documents, such as passports, whilst the applications are processed.

    In addition, the new process will mean that individuals can choose to upload digital files in advance of their appointment, saving even more time.

    The Immigration Minister, Caroline Nokes said:

    The new streamlined service will make the visa application process quicker and easier to access than ever before for people in the UK, through increasing the use of digital services.
    We look forward to working with Sopra Steria to continue to deliver a world class and convenient service for UKVI customers.

    Managing Director of Sopra Steria’s government business, Adrian Fieldhouse, said:

    Sopra Steria has a proud history of delivering services on behalf of government and has been delivering forward-thinking solutions for over 50 years.
    We are excited to continue this tradition, offering people in the UK a new model of public service delivery, as well as a great customer experience. In addition, people will be given the choice to pay more for added value services, so they can create their own bespoke service to meet their specific needs.
    This is a great, tangible example of transformation at work and goes to the heart of our business here at Sopra Steria, which is to make the public service experience for people in the UK a world-leading one.

    The new service will help build community links through working in partnership with the Society of Chief Librarians and utilising their reach into local communities across the UK.
    Alongside the new service, UKVI Service Centres will continue to offer appointments for anyone who needs a face to face interview with a caseworker.

    Sopra Steria will take on the contract in October 2018.
