UKVI Customers who travel from Nicaragua and other Central American countries to Panama for their VAC appointment are eligible to have their passports returned to them for return travel to Nicaragua following their appointment. Applicants availing of this service will need to send their passport to UKVI within 5 working days of their return with a return airway bill to prevent a delay in processing. This service is not available in Mexico.
This is not a passport passback service which is only available in Bogota and requires an additional payment.
Please note, in some VAC locations, including Panama City, a service fee of GBP 55.00 is required for attending the VAC and must be paid in advance. This service fee is in addition to the visa application fee, and paid on the Visa4UK or AccessUK websites at the time of paying your visa fee.
Let the VFS Visa Application Centre come to you. Avoid the need of having to travel outside of Nicaragua for your UK Visa Appointment. By purchasing the VFS On-Demand Mobile Visa Service, a team of trained staff will travel to you and process your application locally.
