the uk visa is going digital

The UK visa is going digital!

The UK Government has announced that UK eVisas are going to replace the immigration paperwork by 2025. Pretty exciting, right?


The United Kingdom is set to gradually phase out the physical biometric immigration cards, including Biometric Residence Permits (BRP) and Biometric Residence Cards (BRC), following their initiative to create a digital border.

Now, instead of physical cards or in-passport vignettes, the applicants will get their visas verified online, which will serve as proof of their immigration status.

The eVisas will also be linked with their passports and/or other travel documents as required.

The applicants must remember to update or create the official UKVI or UK Visa and Immigrations account that will hold their eVisa and other important and relevant documents. They can also share your documents with third parties according to their needs. Make sure to keep this account updated, as border control will verify everything through this UKVI account.
