UK and USA visa processing meltdown
UK visa processing now extends from 4-8 weeks to 8-12 weeks

The demand is increasing, but little to nothing is done by the authorities to help manage the workload. We are inundated with requests, and the public’s desperately seeking their previous Premium Priority Processing option!
Here are some useful tips when applying:

- Speak to your Visa consultant about Walk-in appointment options.
- Discuss your passport release options when combining UK and EU destinations.
USA appointments are gradually opening in certain countries, but South Africa does not currently seem to form part of this list and still don’t have the option to secure visa appointments during the course 2022.
