Welcome to JustAnswer, my name is*****’m an immigration lawyer in the UK and I’m happy to help with your question today.

You can ask to cancel (withdraw) an application for a visa, You’ll get a refund of the immigration health surcharge if you cancel before a decision has been made about your application.

Although please note that if you cancel your application:

  • you cannot stop the cancellation process after and
  • you may lose your permission to stay here if you’re in the UK

Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand, please let me know if you have additional questions.

Thank you for the response. I also want to know if i will be able to submit another application? IF so what v will be the time frame?

When you officially withdraw the application you may submit a new application if you would like to, although be careful not to become an overstayer and make sure you have a valid visa when submitting a new application.
