VFS Global unveils UK Visa Application Centre in Pune

The Regional Director of UK Visas & Immigration and VFS Global’s Regional Head of South Asia formally inaugurated the new UK Visa Application Centre in Pune recently.

The New Visa Application Centre (VAC) offers a number of benefits to customers in Pune including more application counters to make it quicker and easier for customers to submit their visa applications. In addition the VAC has a new Premium Lounge which offers complimentary drinks and a separate lounge so that customers can apply for their visas more quickly and in more luxurious surroundings.

The VAC is located in a more convenient area of Pune and continues to be co-located with the Schengen Visa Application Centre to make it more straightforward for customers to apply for both visas at the same time.

Nick Crouch, Regional Director, UK Visas & Immigration for South Asia said, “The UK continues to welcome more and more visitors from India. The latest visa figures show that over 395,000 Indian visit visas were issued UK last year, a 6% increase from 2015. We hope to see even higher numbers for 2017.”

He further adds, “India is an incredibly important market to the UK which is why we continue to make improvements to our visa service. Last year we introduced a new Visit Visa Application form which for the first time is translated into four regional languages and allows customers to download a completed Schengen visa form. We will continue to listen to feedback from our customers in order to make further improvements where we can.”

Vinay Malhotra, Chief Operating Officer - Middle East and South Asia, VFS Global, said, “VFS Global and UK Visas & Immigration continue to invest and improve the visa service we offer Indian customers. Due to the increase in demand for UK visas in and around Pune we have moved our UK Visa Application Centre to more spacious and centrally located premises. This new centre offers a total of 8 application counters for applicants, and a brand new Premium Lounge, for enhanced convenience for travellers from Pune to the United Kingdom.”
