    On 2nd July, UKVI and UKVCAS both updated their respective guidance information regarding appointments for biometrics.

    UKVI is now looking at reusing certain applicants' fingerprints which were taken in previous biometric appointments for UK visa purposes - see here.

    "If you’ve given your fingerprints before

    If UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) can reuse the fingerprints you’ve already given, you’ll 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."

    According to the updated (2 July 2020) UKVCAS web site here, applicants who registered with UKVCAS after 27th March 2020 and on or before 30th April 2020 are to receive an email from UKVCAS before 4th July asking them to book a biometrics appointment. However certain applicants may not be invited to book a biometrics appointment as it may be possible for UKVI to reuse fingerprints taken for a previous UKVI application:

    "Accelerating the application process

    UK Visas and Citizenship Application Services (UKVCAS) is working closely with UK Visa and Immigration (UKVI) to tackle the significant demand for appointments in order to accelerate the application process.

    UKVI is changing the way it processes applications in response to COVID-19 (see here). This new way of working involves reusing biometrics (fingerprints) that have been recorded in a previous application as part of the process to verify your identity. This will mean that certain customers will not need to attend a Service Point.

    UKVI are currently working to identify those customers that are eligible to use this new approach.

    If you are likely to be eligible for this new process, UKVI has asked us not to invite you for an appointment but to wait for an email which will give you further information and next steps.

    We are continuing to invite customers by email that will definitely need to book an appointment at a Service Point. See ‘Taking a phased approach in date order’ above.

    Further details will be available over the next few weeks. If you have any questions, please check the website for the latest news."

    This seems a sensible way to help overcome the backlog caused by the COVID-19 lockdown.

    It would appear that this new approach to reusing fingerprints is being applied for our ILR application which we submitted and paid for online on 1st May. We also registered with UKVCAS and uploaded all of the evidence required. Nok has just received an email from UKVCAS which includes the following:

    "UKVI is changing the way it processes applications in response to COVID-19 (see here). This new way of working involves reusing biometrics (fingerprints) that have been recorded in a previous application as part of the process to verify your identity.

    UKVI have identified you as being eligible for this new approach involving biometric reuse.

    Importantly, this new digital approach means you will not have to attend an appointment at a UKVCAS Service Point.

    We are also working closely with UKVI to develop a new way for you to submit a facial image. Once this is launched, you will have to submit your facial image as part of the identification verification process so that, if leave is granted, UKVI will be able to produce your new biometric residence permit (BRP).

    We will be in touch over the next few weeks with the details of this new approach and to confirm next steps...

    ...Please note, your immigration status will not be affected in the meantime."

    It's now a matter of waiting to find out how to submit a photo of Nok. On the plus side, no need to take a trip to lovely Croydon to submit biometrics.

    We received the same email this morning regarding our citizenship application. We only submitted biometrics at the end of February for the wife’s ILR application.

    At least this way will save me £69.99 as there are no free appointments at our local UKVCAS centre.

    There is now an option now via “document upload” to submit the documents to UKVI on the UKVCAS account.

    It says: “You now have the option to submit your uploaded documents before your appointment takes place. This action can only be performed once.”

    I have submitted my documents to UKVI and got a message that the documents are “successfully submitted”.
