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
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".
