What is the purpose of collecting the biometric data and do I have to do it?
Posted by , Last modified by on 23 November 2012 12:12 PM

All persons applying for a UK visa at the consulate in Russia must attend the Visa Application Centre to have their biometric data collected except the following:

  • Children under 5 years of age
  • Applicants for Channel Islands and Isle of Man
  • Applicants for Commonwealth countries and Overseas Territories
  • Applicants for Right of Abode
  • Applicants who are exempt from immigration control

We appreciate that this may cause difficulties for many applicants, and if required we can assist with travel, accommodation and transfer arrangements, please ask our team about this.

For further information with regards to the biometric data collection for UK visas, go to the UK visas website at the following link.
