If you intend to apply for UK visa from Pakistan, first thing to note is that Fedex Offices in Pakistan are no more accepting the paper applications. For this purpose, first you have to complete the online application form available, then get a print of the same and then submit the said form along with other documents to support your purpose of visit. Whether you are applying for a visit visa or intends to file your application on points based system, you have to submit your application online. To repeat, no paper application will be accepted by the Fedex Officers in Pakistan from 1st May, 2012. To file online UK visit visa application you have to visit and click "Apply for a UK Visa Now". But before clicking on the said button please ensure you have the complete data regarding your spouse, children, mother and father's date of birth, place of birth etc.

For applying online, you should also have a valid email address. The benefit of providing your email address is that your completed application will be sent to your email address and you can get the print of the same at any time.

Suppose, you may not have the complete data with you and intend to leave the application process paused for the time being. Before completing the application form, you can also save the application by clicking Pause button.

To continue the process of applying online for UK Visa please check the button "I have read the above information and the relevant guidance notes" and then click "continue".

Here on this online form you have to enter your email address and password. Please ensure that the password should be that which you could remember easily. Your passport should consists of 8 to 12 alphabets, digits and does not include symbols, comas, fullstop or space etc.

The process of filling in the online visa application has been made very easy. If you have any doubt you can come back to the previous page to correct any mistake therein.

I filled in certain form but could not find any difficulty. You can consult me by email. Forms have been changed with effect from 16th December, 2013 and now you have also have to pay your fee online through your credit card.

Dear firdousi0, I don't own a credit card, can anyone else may pay for me through his credit card? For this I can do so through my own id at visa4uk or someone else has to make a new login and use "apply for someone else" link on first page of vusa4uk, and refill an application?

Try to get register in different browsers and on different computers as it may be due to some errors in the browser's software that you are using.

Dear sir,

I have an experience of working as a business consultant in Pakistan. I am also running a printing press.

I have checked you website and found many good machinery there which can be a good addition in my business, and can help us in our printing business because of it's good quality and durability.

I personally want to visit your company before I place any order as I am interested in buying some of the required machinery.

I will appreciate if you give me a suitable date to visit your company in the month of June.

I hope this visit will be fruitful for both of the companies.

Kind Regards,

Malik Zahid Ali

For a family of four (husband, wife and two kids), do we need to fill four separate forms or just one form?

Also on online payment, there is no option to pay for 4 persons then How should I confirm that appointment has been booked for all four of us?

Online Payment seems to be only for one person (£85) but how should I pay for four?
