Britain has launched a new “super priority” same-day visa service for urgent travellers from India, the first-of-its-kind to be launched by the UK anywhere in the world.

The Super Priority Visa Service was announced by British prime minister David Cameron during his visit to the country in February this year.

India is the UK’s biggest visa operation in the world, processing around 400,000 applications each year.

Mr Cameron, during his India visit in February this year described India as a key strategic partner in what he has called a “Global Race”.

The first-of-its-kind service launched by the UK Home Office is open for appointment bookings in India from today.

“I am delighted to see the Super Priority Visa service being launched in India before any other country,” said Sir James Bevan, the British High Commissioner to India.

“For the first time, Indian visitors will now have the option of a same-day visa to the UK. This underlines our strong commitment to make an already excellent visa service even better. We expect this new service to be particularly useful for business,” he said, adding that it will cater to those who need to travel on very short notice.
