Happy New Year All ! Good start of a year - Good News.

Thanks to each and everyone in this forum who helped me and guided me thru my visa process.

Thanks to members of this forum who keep updating things which helps others to know what is going on.

My Application timeline:

Visa Type: SET LR - Super Priory UKVCAS
Online submission date: 24/12/2018
Bio-metric submission date: 27/12/2018 @ premium lounge, mark lane london
Automated email received on 27/12/2018 @ 2pm saying - application received and under consideration. The decision would be made within 6 months time.
Dx Email received : 04/01/2019 5am saying Home office parcel with BRP is due to deliver with tracking number.
Royal mail Letter received: 04/01/2019 11:30am saying ILR approved dated 02/01/2019.

I pray and best wishes to everyone who are still waiting for an email or letter but i am sure things are getting faster lately so don't worry guys. I know how it would feel without any communication from home office after expensive fees.

I thanks again for all your help especially respected Guru CR001. I have to do my daughters MN1 and wife's FLRM Next -hope it goes well too.

Kindest regards

Congrats on your approval, I think I saw you in the premium centre on 27th, its because you mentioned about croissant and an orange juice and your time for bio-metrics. I applied for my Set 0 and my bio-metrics was after you, still waiting for any update..

Did anyone receive an email asking to submit their biometrics at a post office? I know it's probably in error but just checking if I'm alone on that one.

Hello,

I wanted to share my experience about super priority service

ILR application through Tier 2 General SET(O) after completion of 5 years
Online application submitted:03/12/18
Automated email received on 03/12/18 with case ID info saying application has been received and is being considered.
Biometrics at Sopra Steria Birmingham facility:14/12/18

I did not receive any feedback. The only mail I received was " application is still under consideration and they expect to make a decision within 6 months of the date of your application" which I think is the generic email after reading the conversation chain. I escalated this twice with UKVI but no feedback yet. I am also thinking to escalate this through MP but will wait until next week as I have been told to wait for 5 working days. I will post later as soon as I get decision from UKVI.

Regards,
pinam

I completed biometrics at the post office for three previous visas. Some of the bigger ones have a special desk at which to do this.

Right.. but did you get an email on the new system asking to submit biometrics at a post office? I got one with the below..

Following your recent Settlement application you will have received a biometric notification letter with instructions for providing your biometric data (scanned fingerprints and photograph). It informed you that you had 15 working days from the date on that letter to have your biometrics taken.

No. I just know it has been possible in the past to submit this at some post offices since they have the ability to do so. I

Very useful thread as we are getting alot of info. I am about to submit my application by choosing super priority service. I have 1 question. when we are redirected to sopra site for document upload and choosing appointment, can we choose appointment venue anywhere or it has to be closest to our home address.
And also please tell me how likely is it to get an appointment in a week time. Issue is i will be flying for holidays in 1st week of march and just dont want to risk by submitting this application. If i get an appointment by 20th january i am guessing i will be ok. Please reply
By default it gives you the 4 nearest locations.

Out of four, one is a core center with possible out of hours and weekend options for an additional fee. You might even get a free appointment but in my experience it’s always 3 weeks later.

Possibly two library locations for a fee of £60 and in my experience always full for next two weeks but I can guarantee you will get one on the 15th day if you login exactly on midnight ( they update around 00:00)

Ofcourse the fourth being premium lounge in London for £260 and guarantee an appointment within next five days but again in my experience you can get almost next day with this option.

And there is no restriction which center you can choose all you need is try with different postcode. There might a list of 57 centres with postcodes on the web and you can try each one if you want.

Note: The appointment time scales I mentioned is based after you logged into sopra site.
This is extremely helpful. Thank you.
So from your experience, it is possible to get an appointment (somewhere) within say, a week. Once you have your appointment and attend it, how long is it until you can leave the country (with all your stuff)? As in, how long until the approval letter and your BRP gets delivered? I am working around some extremely tight work travel dates and I am really concerned about the start to finish times.

I’m a spouse of a British citizen so I can go ahead with citizenship immediately. Plus with Brexit on the horizon I thought I would just get it sorted as soon as possible..

Can this topic PLEASE not be turned in a post Brexit discussion, otherwise it will be locked. There is a specific sub forum already for Brexit issues etc. This is ONLY for Super Priority experiences etc.

what visa did you apply for ? is it Tier 2?

How are you qualifying for ILR if you are not working for your Tier 2 sponsor (if that is what you mean by 'between jobs')?
