ear Sir / Madam
Thank you for your e-mail in which you enquired about status of visa application.
Please be advised that all non-settlement applications are being assessed in British Embassy Abu-Dhabi and settlement applications are being handled at UK HUB London.
Under the current procedure, Passports are kept by BHC Islamabad for as long as the application is sent to one of the above mentioned UK Visa Operation Centres. After the visa application has been concluded from Abu Dhabi or UK HUB, it still has to be in a queue for further process at BHC Islamabad before it is returned to the applicant through Gerry's office.
Due to heavy flow of visa applications we have some back log that is why applicants are requested to check their case status on visa application centre's website at www.ukvacpk.com
You may also contact them on 0900 10411 from a landline or 8865 from a mobile. These calls are charged at a premium rate of 10 Rps per minutes. If you are calling from the United Kingdom, the number to call for telephone enquiries is 00 92 51 209 8999.
Their staff will advise you when to visit their centre to collect / submit your documents/passport.
If you want to provide feedback or complain about the service provided either at the VAC or at the Visa Section, or about the behaviour of a member of our staff please write to the following,
