UK Visa Application payment
Kindly provide assistance in this regard:

I am a Lesotho citizen applying for a UK Visa. I have completed the online application form; however, the system does not allow me to make a payment.
My request is whether I will be able to pay for the Visa application at the centre or you can provide banking details to which I can make the necessary payment.
My intention is to come to the application centre this week to submit the said application.

Your assistance will be highly appreciated.
