The visit visa application form already includes questions about an applicant’s personal and financial circumstances. There is also a section where an applicant can provide any other information that they may feel is relevant to their application.

However, the Home Office is continuously working to refine and improve the products and services on offer to customers, and keeps the efficiency and effectiveness of the visa application process under regular review. Recent improvements include the launch of a new online application route for visitors, and the expansion of priority visa services.
