New requirements for work visa applications in Indian consulates. Since the beginning of August, some Indian consulates have changed the substantive eligibility rules for work visa applications for India. Indeed, it is no longer possible to apply for an Indian work visa without receveing an income from the host entity.

These include consulates in the US, Germany and Hong Kong. The Ministry of Home Affairs will soon clarify these new arrangements and extend them to more consulates around the world.



New restrictions on visa applications. Since the end of August, it is compulsory that visa applications are submitted by a person employed and designated by the local host company. Indeed, it is no longer permitted to file such applications via a third party, even if this person holds a delegation of authority or a power of attorney.








Progressive resumption of priority services. Applicants for work, visitor or student visas can again apply for the priority services offered by the UKVI (U.K. Visa and Immigration). The application for priority service is made at the time of booking the visa appointment.
