To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what is the average time taken to process visa applications for citizens of Czechoslovakia wishing to visit the United Kingdom.

Information about the average length of time taken to process visa applications is not readily available and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost. However, under a visa understanding with Czechoslovakia in 1980, each Government have undertaken to process visa applications for stays of up to three months within 14 working days. Most are issued well inside this time frame.
