Changes to the payment process for UK visa applications in Russia
27 January 2012
From 13 February 2012, all applications for a UK visa must be completed and paid for in US dollars using our online application system.
Payment must be made before going to one of our 5 visa application centres in Russia to submit a printed copy of the application form and biometric data (fingerprints and photograph).
Appointments to submit applications at the visa application centres in Russia are already booked online. The introduction of online payments is part of a wider move to allow almost all our customers to apply and pay for their visas online by 2013-14.
