Mandatory Ban for Overstayers in the UK

IMPORTANT UPDATE ON MANDATORY BAN FOR OVERSTAYERS IN THE UK

The following is an UPDATE to UK-Yankee's original Advisory regarding overstayers and the new policies coming into effect. Please pay special attention to the new dates included in this update.

New Biometric Requirements for US-Based Visa Applicants!

Starting on 3 December 2007, all applicants for UK visas in the US will have to submit biometrics as part of the visa application process.
