Sopra Steria has been awarded a new UKVI contract

Sopra Steria has been awarded the contract to deliver a new service for people applying for a work or study visa, settlement or citizenship from within the UK.

Sopra Steria has been awarded the contract to deliver a new service for people applying for a work or study visa, settlement or citizenship from within the UK, the Immigration Minister announced today (Thursday 17 May).

The new service will deliver a more streamlined application process from over 60 locations across the UK, including 56 local libraries.

Under the new arrangements people using the service will be able to submit biometric information including photos, fingerprints, and signatures and their supporting evidence at a single appointment. The evidence will then be copied and sent to UKVI, meaning that people won’t have to hand over important documents, such as passports, whilst the applications are processed.
