Dear British consulate

I am a South African national in Tahiti, I work as crew on a private yacht transiting Tahiti, I need to go to the UK for some training courses and I need to get a visa for the UK, Would it be possible to do it in Papeete?

I believe its only for collecting finger prints

Kindest regards

I posted a jiffy bag A2 (or A3) at Papeete to Mrs J Winters , 11 Bishops Mead, South Brent, Devon TQ10 9DJ, UK. On 19.02.2014.

We have not heard anything since, could you please check at the Post Office of its whereabouts?

Sending a British passport to the British Honorary Consulate in Tahiti
Hi there
I work for BBC Sport in the UK and need to send a passport with a Chinese visa in for one of our team members. He is sailing round the Islands before he flies to Shanghai and I need to get him the passport before his flight; please can you let me know if I can send his passport to your office for him to collect before his flight on the 10th April. Do you think this would be possible?
