Home Office Payment Processing
The Home Office Payment Processing Service (HOPPS) manages some 705,693 visa applications per annum1 from people seeking to enter or stay in the country each year, with associated payments worth more than £595m per annum1.
Immigration applications receive intense scrutiny from MPs, the press, and the public, and the service requires high standards of efficiency and delivery to retain confidence.
In January 2017 additional services were added for British passport validation and checking for forgeries. We adopted the Home Office approved passport validation techniques and processes. From January 2017 to September 2018 we have validated 77,234 passports.
