Mailing Address Update for UK Visa Applications from USA

UK Visas and Immigrations have issued an update on where to mail applications

Published on August 23, 2019

The UK's Visas and Immigration service (UKVI) has issued an update today (August 23) with a new mailing address for UK Visa applications from the USA.

The new mailing address is:

VFS Services USA Inc.
UKVI Scanning Hub
145 West 45th St
Floor 5
New York NY

The mailing address is used for sending your stamped biometric confirmation receipt (within 5 days of the receipt being stamped during your biometric appointment at a US Department of Homeland Security application support centre), your application form, your passport and supporting documents. As per UKVI guidance, "All applications must be accompanied by a valid passport with at least one page blank on both sides. If the application is mailed without a passport the application will be refused."

Information on the process of applying for a UK Visa can be found via the UK Government's guidance web page "Apply for a UK visa in the USA".
