UK to Open Pop-up Visa Application Center in Guinea

The UK government has announced that from May 28-20, 2024, applicants can submit their UK visa application at the British Embassy in Conakry, Guinea.

Key Details
  • Only applications for a visit visa (for a validity of six months, two years, five years or ten years) can be made at the “pop-up” visa clinic.
  • Applicants for other visa routes (such as student, work, settlement) will not be able to use this service.
  • Limited appointments are available, so places should be booked as soon as possible.

Note that individuals should not apply through this clinic if they need their passport within a month of submitting the application.  Passports will have to be sent to Ghana for processing and the British Embassy in Conakry will have no access to them until a decision has been made and they have been returned to Conakry.

For those applying for a six-month visa, the intended date of travel to the UK should not be after December 2024.
