IMPACT – LOW
What is the change? Responding to high demand, the U.K. Consulate in New York is making more appointments available for visa applicants opting for same-day “Super Priority” service.
What does the change mean? The increased number of appointment slots per day is intended to relieve the wait times to book an appointment, currently four weeks.
Background: Since its launch in New York in March, the flexible but pricey 24-hour Super Priority visa service has proven popular. For additional government fees, travelers can appear in person in New York, complete their biometrics at the consulate and receive visa service within 24 hours.
BAL Analysis: The additional time slots should help relieve the logjam, but appointments are likely to fill quickly and applicants selecting this service should consider the lead time needed to book an appointment.
