April 2016 THE VISA COMMUNICATIONS TOOLKIT The aim of the toolkit is to help UKVI partners inform their customers, clients or colleagues about visas and equip them to answer visa related questions. The materials are updated quarterly to ensure they contain the latest immigration statistics and policy. Applicants, partners and agents should also consult with guidance, which is available on www.gov.uk/visas-immigration
