Biometrics Days 2017

This year FOCC’s biometrics days took place in Mogiliev. It took three days to process all of the visa and passport applications, including photos and finger and thumb prints, and medical information forms for 338 of the children coming to the UK this year with FOCC. No mean feat!

On the third day, we were excited to finally see some photos of FOCC Medway’s children and their interpreters. The 2017 visit will have ten children coming to the UK for the first time (they all look so small!), four returning children and two interpreters. We can’t wait!
