TNT Magazine is campaigning for reforms to UKBA and the introduction of a minimum set of operational standards in dealing with visa issues. Check out our objectives and if you agree sign our petition below.

TNT e-petition

Add your voice to TNT Magazine's UKBA Balls-Up campaign to demand the government agency changes its policies so that:

1. Every applicant receives correspondence when an application has been received

2. Advice is then sent to all applicants detailing the process system and what it means for those wanting to work or travel

3. Every applicant gets access to an emergency helpline which they can call for updates at any time, not only after six months

4. The target for processing visas for those based in the UK who are eligible to work is reduced to three months

5. A full refund is offered to applicants if their application takes longer than the target time if it is due to UKBA incompetency

6. The amount of premium service appointments is increased and a full refund is offered to applicants if the UKBA doesn't adhere to the allotted 24-hour timescale

7. Applicants wishing to extend visas to stay in the UK can do so before the 28 days before expiry deadline
