Apply for a UK visa at
pop-up visa application
centre in Guinea

Instead of travelling to another country to apply for a visa, the UK government has announced that from 28 to 30 May 2024 only, applicants can submit their UK visa application at the British Embassy in Conakry, Guinea.

Only applications for a visit visa (for a validity of six months, two years, five years or ten years) can be made at the 3-day “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 your 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.
