I'm booked for Friday in London Premium Centre. The address is given as "20 Mark Lane"

Using Street View on google maps, all the numbers seem to be in the 50s to 70s.

Where exactly is the London Premium Centre, is there a little side alley you have to go down or something like that?

Hello Everyone,

I am posting my query on this thread as this thread is related to my query on the New Service.

I am going to apply for my wife dependent visa using new service.

I have filled the Online Application and Paid my NHS fees so far.

I am onto the section on online application where it asks me to select the existing service or select the new service.

Could you please help me with the following query with the online application and new service;

.1. As Premium Service center will be closed from this 29th November, I guess I can select the Existing service on the online application just to send the application by post. Correct me If I am wrong on this. ?

.2. Can I use the New Service for the standard type of application where the decision is made within 6 weeks or is this the service just for the Supper Priority Service ?

.3. What should be the format of the documents which we upload using the new service and what format is recommended ?

.4. Could you guys please tell me under what section should I upload my below documents;

• Covering Letter
• Wife Passport
• Wife Biometric Residence permit
• Marriage Certificate as Relationship Evidence
• Council Tax Letter
• Water Bill
• Electoral Registration Letter.
• My Employment Reference Letter.
• My last 6 months Pay Slips.
• My last 6 Months Bank statements from Bank for Maintenance Fund.
• Copy of My passports all pages.
• Copy of My Biometric Residence permit

.5. As an applicant, do we need to upload the applicant passport and brp scanned copy as the part of mandatory documents section or will be done by the center at the time of appointment.

.5. Also I read somewhere in this post that, some people were not able to upload documents in mandatory document sections. So is that OK to upload the documents in the optional document section ?

.6. So far I have just paid the NHS fees for the applicant and have not paid the application fees yet. I guess the application date is when I make the full payment of the application based on the service I select.
Correct me if I am wrong on this. ?

Your help will be much appreciated.

Many thanks

Regards,
Raj

Hi ,

I have paid for document checking £35 and self uploaded all the documents. When will the documents be verified. Do I need to contact some one as it shows no such option.
To me it was a waste of money. They only check the mandatory documents listed 2 working days before the appointment day. In my case it was only the passport so 35 was a waste. The case worker at the Bham centre told me that they do it for free until the end of January.
the self service biometrics machine is crap, it couldnt take my pic in more than 15 tries. had to go to a human booth , then they found they need to re do my wife's biometrics. the only saving grace is that they were polite and nice, helpful
Nihal- Did you get your letter?

Which visa type are you applying for? I still have the same problem, applying for FLR(M)
Family Route - Spouse Visa Extension
I have learned that this visa type will not be released under the new system until November 29th.
How did u know that family route will not be released untill 29th, if you have any link or news mentioned on ukba, please let me know.
Hi there i saw your conversations regarding Family Route-Spouse Visa Extension. I have the same problem here i applied online for FLR (M) but doesn't give me the options for new service and it is impossible to book in any premium service centres. Any help on how to make an appointment?

    Thought I will provide an update on my ILR, as I was looking at these posts my self.
    Submitted application on 22nd Thursday (Nov) at Nottingham Library under super priority, for ILR for me and my wife under Tier 2, 5 year category.

    Did not get any update as to the submission. No questions or contact for more documents neither.

    Called DX secure to see if there is a parcel for my name, none!

    Then called UKVI customer line, and said I have made an application and the decision time has passed (as it is 24 hours). They noted it down, and said within 5 working days I will receive an email regarding my query.

    10 minutes ago, I receive an email from the case worker that my application is now granted and my letters and BRP will follow.

    Despite the promises and extra++ cash it took them more than 3 days to make a decision. However, my application was quite lengthy, with so many evidences particularly of cohabitation. So perhaps this is the reason. However, it is pretty apparent that although they made the front end of UKVI extra efficient backend still needs more resources.

    Received my BRP card today!!
    yesterday I had called up UKVI call centre and selected standards not met option as some had suggested earlier on this forum. Home office had mailed me today morning giving the tracking number of the package sent to me.I tracked the package and it was out for delivery. received it in the afternoon and it had my BRP.

    So it seems the UKVI does respond back the next day either with the decision letter or the tracking number of the package.The only crucial thing is to call them and select the standards not met option.

    If this option was informed properly to all applicants by home office it would have saved all the worries and headache of waiting for the decision.

    so basically to sum up:
    I applied on 22nd.
    Decision taken on 23rd.
    BRP received on 28th.

    one more thing guys..my BRP has 2024 expiry date.is it the same for you??

    congrats, the expiry date is the same as explained in other parts of the forum due to EU laws

    Dear Members, Moderators,

    I started online application for my wife (ILR 10 Years). As I am supposed to scan all the pages of her passport. Do I need to scan All THE PAGES OF MY BRITISH PASSPORT, CHILDS BRITISH PASSPORT which is being submitted as supporting documents to main applicant (My wife).

    If I complete the application and want to book apt for same day /next day service, how quickly can I manage to get the appt.

    One of the mandatory requirement is " Evidence you have to prove the relationship
    with Mr ..................... (for
    example marriage certificates), and
    correspondence addressed either to you jointly,
    or in both of your names, or addressed
    individually to you at the same address, to cover
    the last two years


    For first part marriage certificate is ok. But for the second part Will a GP letter stating our details and all our registered address be sufficient ? or do I need any thing else to cover this mandatory documents section?

    Many Thank to all in advance.

    Kind Regards,

    Locked
