  1. Hi, I'm going through the spouse visa process to bring my QLD resident husband to the UK. Everything has been done apart from his biometrics appointment. I went to select a time and date and it indicated it was a "free" appointment, however when I saved the booking it moved me onto another page and it's asking for $110. Is this normal as there was no mention of this extra cost prior to me selecting an appointment and I thought all of the paying for this (very expensive) visa was finished! If that's what I need to do I'll go ahead and pay of course but I was wondering if this is normal. People on other forums have suggested that there are free appointments available but you have to arrange them for much further ahead and have to pay for earlier appointments. Being here in the UK and this being my first foray into the world of visas/immigration I'm not familiar with how things are done at these centres and I can't find any information on the subject online. Thanks for any help.
  2. Hello My partner and I applied for my partner visa end of Nov 2017 in Paris, where we’d been living for 10 years. My partner is Australian. The issue is I was contacted by my CO to request for Biometrics. This is because I had been living in France. I ‘m currently in Auz on a year long tourist visa. I went to the visa office today to see if I can do the Biometrics there and I was told NO! It had to be Paris! Surely, they can do have me do it here right. I really don’t want to have to go all the way to Paris for this. So stupid I have contacted the CO about this. What do you guys think?
  3. A Biometric Services Platform and user interface application will be used to verify the identify of those taking the Cambridge Advanced English Exam in an attempt to eliminate exam fraud. The biometric verification solution based on the COTS Biometric Services Platform and user interface development services are supplied by Aware, a global provider of biometrics and medical imaging software. The advanced solution will form the basis of Identica, which is part of Cambridge Assessment's exam fraud prevention services. Thanks to the Identica system, proctors can now easily capture ISO-compliant facial images of candidates upon their arrival at the test centre. Organisations can then use these images when they want to verify whether a specific candidate presenting a certificate is really the candidate who took the test. An upgraded system can also support further biometric modalities including fingerprints. Identica will be used for the first time by University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations for its Cambridge English Advanced test, one of the English language tests that are accepted by the Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) for student visa applications. "We launched Identica to enhance the security of our exams, which are widely used for immigration and citizenship, higher education and business, and need the highest levels of integrity," Sarah Corcoran, Director at Cambridge Assessment stated. Cambridge ESOL test centers all over the world have started to use the service and it is expected to be used in over 130 countries by the end of 2011.
