Lost BRP Replacement query

Post by sshah20 » Thu Apr 15, 2021 3:05 pm

Hi All,
I m posting this on behalf of a friend who lost his BRP in the post.
He cancelled the lost BRP and is applying for replacement. He has paid £75 for replacement online which include the fingerprint and picture payment. After that he has been directed to book appointment with visa centre which he says is charging £112 for standard appointment. I m not sure why? Is it not free as he already paid biometric charges which is £19.20. Will he go to post office for his biometric appointment or to the visa centre.Can someone please explain the procedure.

Many thanks in advance.

He has to book an appointment at ukcvas for biomtric enrollment.

If there are no free appointments, then unfortunately he has to pay.

Thanks for the reply. So post office dont do biometric anymore? Visa Centre is charging £112 just for biometric. Is it not free as he already paid it.

No,not for online applications.
Visa Centre is charging £112 just for biometric. Is it not free as he already paid it.
The ukcvas fee is not a ukvi fee. Don't confuse the two. Ukcvas is a third party provider and not ukvi. Ukcvas charges for their service. Ukcvas is operated by a company called Sitel.
