Important: As part of the visa application procedure, you will need to provide electronic fingerprint data along with a digital photograph. If you have temporary injuries on your fingers, please wait until the injuries have healed before you book your appointment. Henna on fingertips may also mean we are unable to get a clear scanned image and should be removed or allowed to fade before your appointment date.
