Do you think ‘pause’ means stopping access to the website even for existing users or simply preventing new member sig...

I'm applying from Malaysia. I made a successful application via this link: https://www.gov.uk/tier-4-gener...

He should contact his University's International student adviser. They are able to contact the Home Office on his behalf. Each University has an Immigration representative at the Decision Making Center. .. At least my university has one!!

Application withdrawn, how to reset portal and reapply?

The UK visa application website is stuck at ‘payment successful’ for the previous application. How do I reset this for reapplication immediately? Documents have been returned already.
