UK Visas and Immigration is embarking on a programme of modernisation, which includes moving to an online application process where almost all customers around the world will apply and pay for their visas online. 
 
Customers in China already apply for their visa online. From Monday 16 December 2013, online payment will be mandatory for all customers (with the exception of those travelling on an official passport). Chinese customers will be required to pay for their visa application fee online from this date, with the option of using either a MasterCard, Visa, China Union Pay card or Alipay. Other methods of payment, including payment at the visa application centre, will no longer be accepted for the visa application fee. 
 
This move provides for a more streamlined application process and is consistent with a wider global trend to online transactions and payments. UK Visas and Immigration is moving towards online being the basic service offered worldwide – providing a consistent service for our customers across the world. We remain focussed on delivering excellent customer service.
