The UK Government Introduces a New eVisa System: Here’s What You Need to Know
The United Kingdom Visa and Immigration (UKVI) is replacing physical documents with a new eVisa system upgrade. An eVisa is a digital record of your immigration status and the conditions of your permission to enter or stay in the UK. The government will use it to keep track of who is entering and leaving the country and ensure that people comply with the conditions of their stay.
This system will replace Biometric Residence Permits (BRP), Biometric Residence Cards (BRC), passport endorsements, such as indefinite leave to enter wet ink stamp, and vignette stickers in passports such as entry clearance or visa vignettes.
The Advantages of the UK’s eVisa System: Convenience, Security, and Efficiency
The UKVI’ s eVisa system upgrade will be more convenient for travellers as they will no longer need to carry physical documentation. Instead, their immigration status will be available online, which they can access from anywhere in the world.
The UK government has stated that the eVisa system will be more secure than physical documentation as it will be more difficult to forge or alter digital records. It will also be faster and more efficient for the government to process applications and make decisions on visa applications.
