Child citizenship fees

Post by jnizz12 » Fri Mar 05, 2021 3:46 pm

hi,

I applied last night and paid:
£1 012 for the application
£19 for biometrics

Today I am trying to book a biometrics appointment via ukvcas and its charging me a further £112.

Is this correct?

thank you

If there are no free ukcvas appointments available, then unfortunately you have to pay. Ukcvas is a third party agent.

I booked an appointment today for free. Try to book again at another time. Usually they open new free appointment at 12am.

Ive been up till midnight everyday for the last 3 weeks and every night at 00:00 a new schedule is available but only the paid appointments are available.

I called in to book, I was on hold for 45 min and they tell me theres no appointments on Scotland.

Does anyone know what time the free appointments are released?

thank you

On a FB group, someone mentioned free slots are released at 9AM. Also, there were appointments in Sunderland and around if you are able to travel.
