Hi all, I thought I'd share my experience and what I know to date:

Nov 28th I attended my Super Priority appointment at 7:30am at London premium lounge (Mark lane). It was for Tier2 General Visa. I arrived early around 7:05 and was seen at 7:28am; left the lounge by 7:50am.

Today I called the 0300 123 2241 to enquire about the status since 24 hrs have passed. What I was told was:
- the 24 hr is not 24 natural hour window, should be 24 working hr. This means that if my application was made on 7:30am on 11/28, a decision should be made by morning of 11/30
- after a decision is made, I'll be notified of the result in 5 working days
- the way I'll be notified depends on the centre, it could be email, or second class mail
- if i don't hear anything by 12/07, I should call back again

So I guess, allow up to 2 working days after your appt for a decision to be made, and hopefully the case worker/centre chooses email rather than 2nd class mail to notify result so we all know as soon as possible!

Hope this helps and hope I'll hear from HO very soon!

Congratulations daisyuk - it was a quick wait for you! It seems doing via an agent is quicker? I have seen two cases receiving letters within only 2 days.

very similar thing happen to me as well they noted my details when call them this morning using options 3 2 1 1 and few hours later get this email saying that
Thank you for contacting UKVI Contact Centre.
Our records show that your application has not yet been completed.We are unable to advise when a decision will be made but you will be notified in writing once made. Until such time, we are unable to assist further.
We are sorry we cannot be of further assistance
its seems normal email send by Contact centre Finally i think we have to wait for Ho to reply.

After the call, I got an email saying that my application is still within standard public time etc. It implies that they had not touched my application. But just few minutes later, a caseworker contacted me about my application. So, obviously calling contact centre does help making things move.

I received 2 emails stating that my application is not processed yet and is still within the standard service etc. i called the centre and they said now since i received the email it may take up to 3 days for the decision and 10 days for the card! after paying for 24 hour service. they have given me an email to complain if i want. they were not particularly kind adn did nto help much at all.

I would suggest you to call them back and not mentioning you have got emails. Each time you will meet different person so no worry, just to make sure that they note down your details. They should have responded to you immediately because it is 24 hour service - this is what I was told by one of the gentlemen I talked to on the phone.

Hey guys, I have been following this post from the start and I am going to apply for SET (M) soon.
I have a question regarding documents upload for SET (M).

If anyone has uploaded scanned documents then please tell me how did you upload Cohabitation proofs ?

Did you include all of the cohabitation proofs for 2.5 years in one pdf or separate pdfs ?

I hope somebody can help me. Thanks :)

You can't upload all the proofs in one single pdf as the maximum file size allows is 6 MB.
Arrange, scan and upload all the documents in order.

Hope that helps!

Thanks for your reply.
I think i will create 3 different Pdf for each year.
Because creating individual pdf for each proof will make so many pdfs (9-10 pdfs for just cohabitation proofs if scanned individually) and it will just confuse the case worker.

Has anyone experienced this?

If there had been any problem, they would have contacted you already. Two possibilities: they have not touched your application yet, or you will get your letters/BRP suddenly.

I've been following this thread from beginning. I had my super priority new service appointment at London Croydon core centre at 9.00am on the 28th Nov. Received the same email like everyone did, but not yet confirmation on approval via email or via post. Will post as soon as I get it. Cheers everyone.

had appointment in Premium Centre London on Friday. Not expecting anything until tomorrow or Wednesday at the earliest, but haven't had any email at all and reading the previous post above, should we have got something? An email saying "we have received biometrics/documents"?

It does not matter how many files you upload, the facility is given so that you can upload as many files as you want but make sure there are named accordingly and in order. Example: for the water bills, you can do like Water Bills - Part 1 and then so on.
