Country to provide biometrics

Post by david_j » Fri Aug 07, 2020 9:01 pm

Hi there.

I'm applying for the Start-up Visa. I met all the requirements and already got the endorsement from an HEI.
However, due to COVID-19, the Visa Application Centres (VACs) in my country remain closed and they've failed to provide helpful information on reopening dates (seems is not happening anytime soon).

I'm wondering, is it possible to provide your biometrics from a country other than your country of residence?

So, for instance, I can travel to the nearest country where VACs are operating, submit my biometrics and stay there for a few weeks until I get my documents back.

I'm urged to travel to the UK, so I'm considering any possible alternatives.

Thank you.
