Within the UK you can download the form and apply by post - the address is on the form.
As part of your application, you’ll need to have your fingerprints and photograph (known as ‘biometric information’) taken at a Post Office.
Find a Post Office that offers the enrolment service - choose ‘Home Office Biometric Enrolment’ from the drop down list.
How long it takes
A decision will be made within 8 weeks for online applications.
You’ll be contacted if your application is complex and will take longer, eg:
- if your supporting documents need to be verified
- if you need to attend an interview
- because of your personal circumstances (for example if you have a criminal conviction)
Once you’ve applied you can stay in the UK until you’ve been given a decision, as long as you applied before your last visa expired.
