  3. Hi,
    I have applied for my student visa extension from within the UK. It has been 8weeks since I sent my application but I haven’t received my biometrics date yet. However I received the application acknowledgement from ukba. But here is the problem. The debit card details that I have given for visa fees has now expired and I have a new debit card. Hence the old card is invalid. What should I do now? Is there anyway I can contact ukba and notify them about the changes? Any advice would be whole heartedly appreciated. Thanks.
