    I just noticed this on the VFS website .

    Due to security concerns, only the principal applicant will be allowed to enter the application centre. However, interpreters are allowed to accompany physically challenged applicants.
    Does anyone know the reasons behind it? A result of violence/threats to centre staff following refusals?

    Looking at the other restrictions it suggests a terrorist related issue. Obviously there is a direct link to the British Embassy and that may be the reason for the elevated level of security - perhaps on the recommendation of the Home Office or the Security Services.

    In the UK, the Current threat level is
    Severe
    where:
    severe - an attack is highly likely
