Hello. I can assist you with your question.

Expert:  Michael Hannigan replied 3 years ago.

Interestingly, the UK Border Agency was not formed until 2008. The document I am sending you the link to gives a good synopsis of that.

In light of this, is there additional information that you need?

Also, if you go to this archives page, you can select to view the UKBA page as it was on various dates, starting with April of 2008. This is a great resource if you are trying to find additional information.

Your question specified the UKBA, which didn't exist yet.

These are the business hours for the Home Office during
that 2007/2008 holiday season. While it is possible that individuals took
personal leave, the official schedule of the Home Office was as follows:


Monday 24th December - Open until 12.30pm
Tuesday 25th December - Closed
Wednesday 26th December - Closed
Thursday 27th December - Business as usual
Friday 28th December - Business as usual

Monday 31st December - Open until 4.00pm
Tuesday 1st January 2008 - Closed

Wednesday 2nd January 2008 - Business as usual

Thursday 3rd January 2008 - Business as usual

If you would like me to do additional research, let me know.
