UKBA Contact Number – UK Border Agency Contact Number.
The UK Border Agency (UKBA) is part of the the Home Office, with the role of protecting the borders to the United Kingdom, through controlling immigration. They manage the visa application process, the process behind applying for asylum within our borders and the process of applying for British Citizenship. They are also responsible for our customs, namely they ensure that goods not allowed here do not make it past our borders or that goods coming into our country that attract tax are fully accounted for with the taxation going straight to the treasury. If you need to speak to a representative in regard to any of the above you will find the UKBA contact number here.
The UKBA became an agency in April 2008 following a merger between the old Border and Immigration Agency and some functions from the Inland Revenue. The idea behind this merger was that the new UKBA, acting as a single agency, would have greater control over protecting the UK borders. The UKBA now employs approximately 23,500 staff and operates in 130 countries world-wide. This is a large organisation, if you need help finding who you need to speak to within the agency, you can find the UKBA contact number here.
The UKBA was recently split into two separate entities, one being responsible for managing the United Kingdom’s immigration, visas and enforcing immigration law where as the other will focus on immigrants already in the UK who do not have the necessary permissions to be here. There are many different departments dealing with different aspects of border management. For instance, there are different departments and different teams that you would need to speak to if you had a visa enquiry rather than a query surrounding goods that are allowed to be brought into the United Kingdom. Sometimes , with so many different operations and then departments and with the agency having a large remit,it can be confusing to figure out exactly where you need to call and who you need to speak to. We can help guide you to the correct department to answer your query, by providing the UKBA contact number.
