Visa Application Payment Methods (paypal allowed?)


Does anyone know whether paypal payments are accepted for both stage 1 and/or stage 2 application?

According to the Home Office website (

“payment for visa applications can only be made online using Visa or MasterCard debit or credit cards; prepaid e-wallets or the Skrill digital wallet”

Does prepaid e-wallets include paypal?


I do not believe so.


If you will check very similar topic at Home Office page, there is an answer to your question:
“From 16 December 2013, all UK visa applicants in India who are making a new application will have to pay their visa fees online via Visa or MasterCard debit or credit cards or via e-wallet (PayPal or Skrill).”
