Bio-What?

12 10 2008

Biometrics.

As of Feb 2005, all those applying for a UK  Visa,  must get  fingerprinted and eye-scanned.

“Holy Crap!” That’s what I thought when I first found out.  Actually, my first thought was “Did they single me out, because they think I’m a terrorist?” But then I found out EVERYONE has to, and I felt better. *Whew*

I was pretty nervous going into the office last Friday to get all this done. You don’t even get to find out where the office is until you make the appointment! They email you the location.  Flashes of Mission Impossible and James Bond appeared before my eyes.  However, the Visa Officers were probably the friendliest people I’ve had to deal with thus far! No joke.  I was in and out in 30 minutes.  Impressive. Although they didn’t laugh at my terrorist joke.  Hmmm….

So I’m now officially “passport-less,” as they confiscated it to send to the British High Commission for my Visa.  I’m also officially “in the system.” At least my fingerprints and retinas are.  Now all those “Anna” imposters can just bite me!

I’m so close I can taste it!

OH…ANNNNNND… Further to my earlier post, Macbooks Are Sexy, its confirmed, there is going to be a new Macbook announced this Tuesday! WOOO!
