How to apply for UK Visa from Pakistan - Necessary changes

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 http://www.visa4uk.fco.gov.uk/Welcome.htm 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.

UK visa office suggests that you may have your passport and other information relating to your stay in UK etc. Please note that if you are applying for a visit visa your passport should be valid for more than six months. 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.

After filling in the application form you may get an appointment for visiting the Fedex Officers. Complete address of the same are as under:-

ISLAMABAD 14-B, Sadiq Plaza G-9 Markaz
KARACHI 43/1/D, Razi road PECHS, Shahrah-e- Faisal Karachi
LAHORE 20, Ex American Centre Building, Opp. Ganga Ram Hospital Queens Road
MIRPUR Nau Mahal Plaza, Near Football Square, Defense Road

To get an appointment you may call 0900 10411 (from landline) or 8865 (from your mobile). You may have to wait for a long period for reaching the representative of the UK Visa Office.

      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?

      Thanks

      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

      Dear Imran,

      yes you need to apply online for visit visa. You can book appointment of biometric online. After applying online, download the completed form, print and sign it and take this with your documents to VAC on the date of appointment.
