There has been further developments last week on the VFS Global backlog in Manila.
Immigration Matters has received reports that several NVQ student visa candidates from Majestic College with appointments booked in April have been contacted by VFS staff to re-book the appointment before the end of March. This despite the fact that new callers are still being told that there are no appointments available until May 2009.
Meanwhile, a number of Immigration Advisers have pointed out that the British Embassy are required under Immigration Rule 34 to accept VAF Student Visa applications and documents by Registered Mail or Post. This would appear to contradict advice from VFS Global’s, the British Embassy’s partner in Manila, that NVQ Student candidates will only be seen by appointment.
Do you have any experience with VFS Global or the British Embassy you would like to share with Immigration Maters?
Your comments would be appreciated.
