Assisted digital service

UK Visas and Immigration have set up an assisted digital support service that is available to customers who do not have the appropriate access, skills or confidence to complete an online application form.

The assisted digital service aims to ensure that nobody is excluded from making an immigration application due to lack of digital skills or access to a computer.

Eligible customers are offered telephone support, or face to face support at a library or their home, to help them access and complete the online form. This service does not provide immigration advice. For more information and contact details for the assisted digital service visit

or phone 03333 445 675. You can also text the word “VISA” to 07537416944 or email . Please include a telephone number you can be contacted on if possible.
