You can withdraw your application for this visa in writing at any time before we make a decision on it. Your request must include your full name and date of birth, as well as details of the application you are withdrawing.
Any additional applicants who are 18 years of age or older must sign the letter of withdrawal or send a separate email or letter.
If you currently have a TPV application being processed, you should wait for a decision on that application. If you have already been granted a TPV, you can apply for this visa.
If the health, security and character checks you obtained through your TPV application are still valid, we will be able to use them for the purposes of your application for this visa, to process your application for this visa as quickly as possible.
If you are considering applying for this visa before your TPV application is decided, be aware that:
- you will need to withdraw your TPV application to apply for this visa
- this process will result in delays to you receiving a visa decision.
If you withdraw your TPV application before you apply for this visa, the bridging visa you were granted in association with your TPV application will cease approximately 28 days after you withdraw your TPV application. If you do not apply for another visa during that 28 day period and your bridging visa ceases, your immigration status will become unlawful.
