Step 3 of 3: Hand in your supporting documents

"Who is Teleperformance?" you might ask. Teleperformance have been appointed to handle the front of house for the British High Commission in Pretoria, formally known as "commercial agency" who handle the UK's Visa Application Centres. They are a glorified courier service that receive passports and visa applications on the British High Commission's behalf.

It is important for South Africans to realise that they have no bearing on the final outcome of the visas approval. Teleperformance are only responsible for sending the application to Pretoria. They do have the tendency to make applicants second guess their application and should not be taken seriously.

More details regarding Teleperformance can be found on our Visa Application Centres page.
