UKBA to use 2nd class post for EU applicants

The UKBA will no longer pay for recorded delivery costs for returning the supporting documents of EU applications. Instead the agency will use second class post for EU applicants who don’t provide their own prepaid recorded delivery costs.

This change affects new applications submitted on or after Monday 17 January 2011 using forms EEA1, EEA2, EEA3, EEA4 or FRMS.

One can only wonder if this measure is related to some austerity drive within the agency. Most critics of the UKBA’s bureaucracy agree that its monumental inefficiency is not worth the billions paid to the agency’s staff.
