CSC Introduces WorldBridge Service to Manage UK...





EL SEGUNDO, California, July 10 /PRNewswire/ --

    - Visa Application Centers Launch in Germany to Provide Comprehensive
Information Services



    Computer Sciences Corporation (NYSE: CSC) today announced WorldBridge, a
new service that will provide UK visa applicants with comprehensive visa and
immigration information and assistance.



    WorldBridge will establish Visa Application Centers (VACs) in 15
countries throughout Europe, the Americas and North Africa & Middle East, and
will provide information services through the Internet, e-mail and
multilingual call centers to an additional 87 countries. Responsibility for
deciding the outcome of each visa application and the issuing of visas will
remain with the British Diplomatic Mission.



    The first German VAC has opened in Dusseldorf, and two Micro-VACs have
opened in Berlin and Munich. All applicants for a UK visa must now apply in
person through the VAC or Micro-VACs. Micro-VACs are locations at which
applicants may provide their biometric data after having first completed
their application online at http://www.visa4uk.fco.gov.uk. Applicants may now
submit their applications, provide their biometric data and seek general
immigration information at the VACs.



    "Building on CSC's experience of delivering transformational services to
the public sector globally and specifically through our UKvisas service, we
look forward to helping UKvisas achieve desired business results and benefits
of the new service to citizens across Germany," said Guy Hains, president of
CSC's European Group.



    Changes and improvements to the UK visa application process are part of
the UK's Managed Migration Strategy and Global Commercial Partnership
Programme. CSC announced a business process outsourcing contract with UKvisas
in late February 2007 through which CSC will provide visa services for the UK
around the world. For more information on UKvisas and the program, visit
