The UK Border Agency has redesigned its website with the aim of making the immigration process more straightforward for users, reports.

Currently information on UK visa applications can be found on three separate Government websites. The agency says however, that the changes will be an 'important first step in the UK Border Agency’s plans to have one integrated website for all its customers in the UK and overseas'.

The UKBA hopes that by presenting information more clearly and on only one site, it will lead to less confusion among site users and allow them to find what they are looking for more easily. The information guides for visa applicants are one of a number of features the UKBA cites as having been improved and updated.
