The UK Border Agency will provide visa applicants from Antigua & Barbuda with a local Mobile Biometric Clinic on 18 May 2012. The one-time mobile biometric clinic will be located in St John's, Antigua.

The mobile biometric clinic is by appointment only and there is an additional fee for using this service. People from the Eastern Caribbean wishing to apply for UK visas should apply as soon as possible so they can make sure they have an appointment. Normally applicants have to travel to Barbados or Jamaica in order to register their biometric information.

The clinic will be run by CSC, the UKBA's commercial partner for the Americas region.

Recently the UK expanded the biometric system to require all applicants from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) applying to stay in the UK for more than 6 months to register their fingerprints and digital facial image. Successful applicants will be issued a biometric residence permit as evidence of immigration status and entitlements in the UK. This includes applicants applying for Tier visas and refugees.
