Embassy visit

Hi All,

We have our interview tomorrow morning :) We are travelling from Edinburgh so we will be spending the day in London...

Can anyone who has been to the Embassy please let us know if you can take a small bag (not rucksack) and mobile phones, and perhaps a camera (for our day out :))?

We appreciate security will be tight, but as we are travelling so far, not being able to take a small bag (to hold the paperwork in) and our phones will be very hard!

Please advise kind people :)

Every Embassy I know has an x-ray machine. You'll have to leave your cell phones, cameras, etc at the gate, and they'll x-ray your bag and usually let you take in the rest.

No electronic devices are allowed in the compound.


YMMV

The guards at the security hut will take your phones/cameras/etc and give you a numbered ticket. When you come out of the Embassy, you go back to the hut and reclaim them. Very easy. Small bags are fine to bring in after X-raying.

Sure,

best deal we could find was with BA (unfortunately) going to heathrow T5. You get the tube from there and its a fairly short journey into the Embassy location.

Easyjet only goto Stanstead and Gatwick which are both too far away from the centre of London...

Book as soon as you get your interview date as flights get very expensive in the UK when you leave them late.
