CSC Worldbridge (UK Biometric Outsource to US Corp)
I wonder how much information is going into their data mining, given the UK outsourced collection of it's biometrics to American CSC Corp and is currently taking the biometrics of European residents that visit the UK, when they apply for their visa. Your turn soon brits, CSC will need your biometrics soon!
Here's the German embassy version of it:
FOR ALL APPLICANTS FOR A UNITED KINGDOM VISA
* All persons applying for UK visas must lodge applications through the British Consulate's commercial partner, WorldBridge Service (a division of CSC) at Düsseldorf, Berlin or Munich.
* All visa applicants, irrespective of nationality, will have to apply in person to a Visa Application Centre (VAC) and have their fingerscans and digital photograph taken.
* You must make an online appointment in order to submit your application. Appointments can be made through the WorldBridge website: www.visainfoservices.com. People who turn up at the VAC without an appointment will be turned away. "
