The visa application centre will re-open on Wednesday 16 March 2011.
We advise those applying in Tokyo to check our local website for details of the impact on visa services, alternative application arrangements and regular updates:
Japanese nationals in the UK who are due to leave in the coming days and weeks
We would like to reassure any Japanese nationals unable to leave the UK due to the situation in Japan. The agency appreciates that this was due to exceptional circumstances.
Those in this situation should keep their proof of original travel plans and make arrangements while they prepare to leave the country as soon as practicable.
For further information and updates on the current situation in Japan, customers should also visit the British Embassy Tokyo website.
