hey nim,
we run into this same screen a few weeks ago. It reverted to back to the standard and super priority screens after as few days as dilse4srk stated. I will advise you to wait for a few days if you are not in a hurry. The super priority option should pop up soon.

HI

Once you are on the final check checklist, you will get two services

Standard
and new super priority service
once you select that, you will be asked to pay 3018 and once the payment is completed then you will be redirected to sopra site to book appointment. It will be helpful if you could share a screenshot of your current application screen
I filled my application Set(O) yesterday and could access Priority service.

How many from Nov and Dec are still awaiting decision?

The rate at which UK V&I is clearing the backlog is not encouraging at all.

Sorry i did submit my wife’s passport.

No they didn’t ask for marriage certificate but I sent it anyway.

All files were under 6 mb, I had to adjust the scanner quality between 180 to 200 dpi. I made sure quality is good and opted for quality check.

For the SET(M) application you only need to scan declaration form and at the end there is a declaration for you as an applicant which is part of the application. I did not print any other type of consent ad they haven’t asked for it.

I combined the bank statement in order in 1 file.

Files:

1. 12 bank statements although I only had to submit 6
Did you upload them under same file?if the answer is yes how did you manage to keep the file under 6MB?
2. 12 payslios although I only had to submit 6
Same first question?

3. Life in the UK test

4. My Masters degree taught in the UK

5. Employer letter stating start date, period of employment(from start to current), annual salary from April 2017 to April 2018 and from April 2018 to current time. And in the same letter my employer confirmed that my payslios are genuine and stamped by the company.

6. Marriage certificate
Did they ask for it ?
7. Mortgage agreement and statement
8. 16 joint letters of correspondence (you only need 6)
Same first question?
9. Current passport and old expired passports
Same first question?
10. Current BRp
11. Recent council tax
12. Declaration form signed by my wife

From your list you didn't submit consent confirmation form for home office to check your documents? And also you didn't submit
Your wife proof of settlement?




Hi R-graphite,

Did you get an email or a message notification when your BRP is being delivered as I've had my decision/approval email on 7th January along with Arrpoval letter same day but not received BRP yet and it is of no help when contacting Home Office or DX they are just making me go round and round in circles

Hi Praveenv

I don't think they are clearing any backlog this week. I haven't heard any progress since last 3 days.

I am waiting since 8th December, did 3 escalations, sent complaint email on 21st december, but no response yet, wrote to MP this week, he said he will contact Home Office within 10 working days. This wait is getting more difficult now.

My FOI request for the number of cases that failed to meet the 24 hours service standard in the first 4 weeks of UKVCAS system has just been refused by the UKVI! They confirmed that they hold this information but won't release it until later this year. I will submit the request again in a couple of months.

They are not even taking any escalations after 3 i guess?
At least for me they are not - last time I was told to wait for a month.

Hi, I didn’t receive any email of when the DX will deliver. I only received a generic mail from HO saying that It will arrive within 7 days.
But I made sure to contact DX online using their chatting system and asked them everyday if they have a BRP for me at my address and I found them helpful as they told me that today you will be receiving it and I did.

Waiting since 22nd Dec on Priority 10 days visa service.

Called Home Office, they just told me to send the email to the email address they provided.

Has anyone got the Dependent Visa on priority service recently ?

Not sure what to do and how long need to wait.

No email or letter from home office so far.

I applied for my wife's SET(LR) using new service and super priority next day option on 01 Jan, 2019 and booked appointment for £100 in Birmingham centre for Wed, 09 Jan. Location near Birmingham airport was easy to find with ample free parking. Appointment time was for 10am and we got there at 9:40am. Surprised that room was full of people, probably from morning appointments. The waiting room was pretty small and cramped. Main officer in charge and all others were nice though, friendly, first checked appointment details and passport, then called for biometrics after 1/2 hour and finally we were called for document upload after another 1 hour. In all, we left the office just after 12pm, so process took around 2.5 hours, because some people take a long time to upload their documents. We however had uploaded most of ours beforehand but still needed half hour for checks and submission. I asked person about document upload page which only allows for uploading to optional documents and she said that was fine. Apparently, the passport scan they do themselves and is part of the mandatory category. Next two days on Thurs and Friday we were expecting to hear from case worker by email within 24 hours, but we got letter in post signed for on Monday, third working day after we had the appointment, which was dated 11 Jan. So it took longer than 24 hours and perhaps because ours was a complicated case. Result was not good, we got refused. But point is, procedure was pretty straightforward. Hope others have a good experience!

Hi All

This is my first post in this group.

Thank you to all.

I have received my ILR (LR) decision today.

Application Submitted 7th January, Biometrics done on 16th January 10:00 AM, Decision received via email 11:00 AM. I believe service done in 24 hours.

My Journey might give some hope for those who are waiting or about to attend the Super Priority Soon

Thank you all again

Sorry to hear about your refusal, did they tell the reason for refusal and options that you may have. Also this is the first refusal on this thread so will be great to know why it got refused.

Ok - so your application was priority and the above emails correspond to that.
I am guessing there is no email for super priority service.

I didn't receive any emails after the biometrics.
Only generic emails after each escalation.
