On her latest update on the Ukraine Family Scheme, the Home Secretary has announced that applicants will no longer need to submit their biometrics at Visa Application Centres, and will have their passport checked online. Further details will be published shortly, but we expect a similar system to the current ID check apps available under several immigration routes.

This is a welcome change, however, we are still waiting for details about Ukrainians without family connections in the UK. We will share more information as soon as it becomes available.
