UK offers visa fast track for Bangladeshi applicants

From 1 July 2012, the UK Border Agency will offer two new fast track services for Bangladeshi UK visitor visa and Tier 2 visa applicants under the Business Express Programme. The Business Express Programme is for Bangladeshi companies invited by UK Trade and Investment and the UK Border Agency to be members of the programme.

The fast track processing is an optional service for visa applicants, under which the UKBA will process visas and return documents within three working days in Dhaka and five working days in Sylhet.

The service is available to applicants who have previously travelled to the UK, USA, Australia, New Zealand, Canada or any of the countries under the Schengen Area, without difficulties within the last five years.

The UKBA will expedite the processing of UK business visitor visas and Tier 2 visa applications for company employees as part of the Business Express Programme.

"I am delighted to see these services being launched in Bangladesh. Fast Track provides an enhanced customer service option and supports our aim to encourage legitimate visitors to the UK," British High Commissioner to Bangladesh Robert Gibson said.
