    UK visas to be processed in Nairobi

    Daily News; Wednesday,November 12, 2008 @21:15

    The United Kingdom visas for Tanzanians wishing to travel to Britain would from December this year be processed in Nairobi. The British High Commission Press Officer, Mr John Bradshaw, told journalists in Dar es Salaam yesterday that effectively from that time, there won’t be visas issued in Tanzania.

    Mr Bradshaw illustrated that the process to get a UK visa will now take six weeks, instead of the old five days that majority of UK travellers used to enjoy. According to the new directives outlined, an applicant of UK travel permit will have to submit an application on line, and then wait for an appointment that will require the applicant to bring appropriate documents to High Commission office in Dar es Salaam for verification.

    Mr Bradshow said the last procedure will take place in Nairobi, where the whole process will take three weeks before the visa is ready. He said the changes are part of UK government’s plans to restructure its visa operation, known as ‘Hub and Spoke Visa Processing’. He added that UK visas for southern African countries are now processed in Pretoria, South Africa, where seven countries, including Namibia, Botswana, Mozambique, Lesotho, Swaziland, Malawi and Zimbabwe get the service.

    Mr Bradshow advised travellers to apply for long term visas, which are cheaper than making a 6-month permit application. He insisted that student visa applicants should apply three months in advance, to enable them travel on time, because student visa does not require an interview. Over 8000 Tanzanians apply for UK visas every year, Mr Bradshow said.

    Why Nairobi and not Dar? :(
    In my opinion the reason given is not good enough.

    Huu utakua ubaguzi ulioje?
    What justification can they give about it apart
    from the ambigous statements?Isiwe wanampango kufanya kama
    kule Nigeria ambapo vijana wa umri f'lani hawapewi visa.

    Kisha mbona wamerefusha m'da wa ku-process the document?

    Jamaa hawataki na kwao sio....?

    Acheni ku-panic! Mambo yakawaida haya!

    Hapa ninapoishi, whenever I apply for UK Visa, natumia process kama ya japo juu, na kuipata si chini ya wiki moja, sasa tatizo liko wapi! Tulieni vijana!

    We might give it names but may be we are using our system as a bench mark! This is a wrong approach, you can't use an ineffecient system like the one we have in Tz to set pace for others.

    Restructuring of systems is a common thing and I don't think there is a problem as long as the new system is just as efficient as the old one. We don't need to ask why Nrb and not Dar because even Kenyans would be asking the same questions if it was the other way. But if you listened to the Officer, NRB has more applicants than Dar!

    Huendi Nairobi. Nadhani hiyo article hapo juu imeeleza kuwa verification za Docs zinafanyika Dar. Nairobi kule ni ku-stamp Visa tu!

    Mimi hawa Wazungu huwa wananikera sana; ninyi Wabongo mlipo huko 'majuu' mkibeba maboksi na kusoma niambieni what is so special huko Ulaya? Yaani kupata visa ya kuingia nchi zao tunasoteshwa kama nini wakati wao wanakuja tu kwetu na wanapewa visa hapo hapo uwanja wa ndege! Kwa nini nasi tusiweke vikwazo vya namna hiyo kwao?

    Inabidi WaTanzania sasa tujifunze lugha ya Kijerumani na tuachane na hawa Waingereza waliotutawala wakachukua rasilimali zetu na kuacha kuendeleza miundombinu iliyoachwa na WaJerumani; na sasa hawa hawa waingereza wanatuwekea vigingi vya kuenda kwao.
