Changes to Applications for Entry to the UK process

Notice from SO1 Engagement Armed Forces Covenant Team:

I am delighted to notify you that on 19 Mar 2018, following extensive MOD, Service Family Federation and Service charity consultation with the Home Office, a new on-line service for Foreign & Commonwealth Armed Forces personnel and their family members seeking entry to the UK was launched by Visa4UK, replacing the previous application process and paper form. As a result of this change, applicants will no longer have to pay the health surcharge and then submit a request for reimbursement.

Service Families Hot Topics

See the Mar 18 edition of the Service Families Hot Topics newsletter at this link:

Royal Humane Society

Do you know someone who has put his or her life at risk to save, or attempt to save, another person, or someone who has carried out a successful resuscitation?

Do you know someone who has saved a life by timely first aid, such as stopping arterial bleeding?

If so, you should be aware of The Royal Humane Society - a charity that grants awards for acts of bravery in the saving of human life and also for the restoration of life by resuscitation.

Awards may be granted to those who have put their own lives at risk to save or attempt to save someone else. The awards granted for these acts of bravery include bronze, silver and gold
medals and testimonials on vellum or parchment.

Anyone can make a nomination to them and they would like to hear from you (further details can be found at https://www.royalhumanesociety.org.uk/nominate/).
