Form Filling Service

A personalized service provided by VAC staff to assist you with the completion of your application form at the application centre.

Our staff will help you to complete the visa application form, asking the exact questions on the form, and recording the answers verbatim in the applicant’s own words. It is really important to note that we will not be offering advice. Our staff will ask you what category you are applying in and then you will be asked each and every question and we will enter the exact answer on the form.

Before finalising the form our staff will read the entered information back to you and will ask you to sign a disclaimer to confirm that all the answers are correct.

Using the Form Filling service does not imply or guarantee in any way that your visa application will be successful. All applicants must meet the requirements of the relevant immigration rules.

SMS Service

We are pleased to be able to offer an SMS service which updates customers in Pakistan on the progress of their visa applications. The easy to use SMS service sends an automated message to the applicant's mobile phone at various stages of the visa application process. This is followed up with an automated email message to the applicant's email informing them of the status of their visa application. Please note that the SMS service provides information about the stage your application is in, but no information will be given via SMS or e-mail about the outcome of the decision on your visa application. You will only be notified about the decision that has been made when your passport is returned to you. The SMS service is available in English and Urdu.

This optional service can be purchased for PKR 315 when you submit your visa application. Please read the disclaimer carefully before applying for this service.

Note: This value added service is available in Pakistan (Local SMS only).

Courier Return Service

Have your passport couriered back to you instead of collecting it from the VAC.

The visa application centre will courier the decision on your visa application, documents and passport back to you. You can buy the service at the visa application centre for a fee of 2,200 PKR (all applicable taxes included). Please enquire about this service when you submit your visa application at one of the service desks.
