Visas and Nationality

Visas and Nationality Service –the application process

Supports applications for UK visas, settlement and citizenship

How long does it take?

The Visas and Nationality standard service is faster than other NARIC services, to help you meet UKVI deadlines. The turnround time is 10 working days. 24- and 48-hour Fast Track options are available.

The 24-hour or 48-hour Fast Track time begins when we have received all required documents and payment. Postage/delivery time is extra, on top of the 24-hour/48-hour service time.

Documents required

We need:

  • A copy or scan of your final certificate
  • A copy or scan of your academic transcripts (documents from affiliate colleges accepted)
  • A copy or scan of a Medium of Instruction letter (MOI letter) which confirms that the qualification was taught and assessed completely in English (documents from affiliate colleges accepted)
  • A copy or scan of translations of your documents, if not issued in English originally.
