A Bank Draft, International Money Order, or Postal Money Order in pounds sterling or U.S. dollars are the only payment methods that we can accept for mail-in applications. They are payment methods that are drawn by the bank and guarantee that funds are available. We can no longer accept credit or debit card forms as they are not a secure way to transfer sensitive financial information.
We cannot accept personal checks (cheques), SWIFT transfers, IBAN transfers, e-transfers, certified checks, traveler’s checks, or counter checks.
We are unable to accept cash for applications submitted by mail. Furthermore, we cannot accept payment through our website, by electronic transfer, or by telephone, fax or email.
Any attempts to pay using payment methods that we cannot accept will delay your application until you either submit an accepted form or payment or schedule and attend an appointment to apply in person.
