Helping the UK Border Agency International Group to deliver a world-class biometric visa service
The UK Border Agency International Group needed to introduce a biometrically-enabled visa system that would process over 2.7m applications a year, as part of the UK government’s five-year immigration and asylum strategy. To achieve this, the UK Border Agency required a biometric strategy and effective delivery approach that would integrate its people, processes and systems.
PA Consulting Group worked in partnership with the UK Border Agency and specialist technology vendors to deliver a global biometric visa service that provides an intuitive method of enrolment, secure messaging and automated delivery of results to the right decision makers. PA also managed a rapid procurement process which awarded global contracts to outsourced service providers for the collection of biometrics from visa applicants.
We played a fundamental role in successfully delivering the programme from concept to implementation, three months early and several million pounds under budget. The UK government is now able to collect biometrics from visa applicants in 133 countries and over 350 locations.
