having paid for a 24hr decision, if they take 4-6 days with me, there's no way on earth I won't be claiming at least a partial refund, especially as it's ILR I'm going for and there'll be no further need to keep the HO sweet. :D
Hello Allyf,
Did the HO refund your super priority? I have just had my biometrics and all my documents has digitally scanned and submitted yesterday at 9:30am but no email from HO at all. It’s just annoying and disappointing that we paid for 24hours decision that they cannot fulfilled.

I have been reading every post on this thread since i submitted my application for ILR using the super priority service and wish to post my own experience going through this process.
Time line:

06 - 06 - 2019 I applied for ILR using SET M.
26 - 06 - 2019 I submitted my application at UKVCAS in Croydon
29 - 06 - 2019: I received a letter telling me that my ILR has been approved on 26 - 06 - 2019.

The only thing that i wanted to highlight is that, i noticed that most people in this forum have received an email to confirm the processing of there application.But that was not the same in my case. Although i did check here https://right-to-work.service.gov.uk/prove/id-question on thursday the 27th of June with my current BRP and the detail was showing that 'There is no limit on how long you can stay in the UK.'

I hope someone will find this information helpful.

I am now awaiting for my BRP card to arrive. Good luck to everyone going through this process.

congrats

If your status changed in the Prove your status gov site on the 27th, that would imply that a decision was made within 24hrs or at least next day after biometric. The email might have gone into your junk or maybe not sent at all

Also check the date on the approval letter

Hello everyone,

I applied for a Tier 2 Extension using the 5-Day UKVCAS Priority service with biometrics registered on 10/06/2019. I got my BRP straight through on 13/06/2019 with no other accompanying letters/acknowledgement. Its been 3 weeks now and still no sign of it. Is this usual?

Moreover, is it OK for an old BRP to show up as invalid on the Right to Work portal after a new BRP has been assigned? I also checked this new BRP number on the portal and it couldn't find it. Has anyone else had any issues with it?

Please do let me know. Many thanks in advance!

Hi All,

I went in today and paid for the Super priority and got a reply this afternoon stating "I’m pleased to confirm that your application for further leave to remain under FLR (IR) of the immigration arrangements has now been decided. You will receive your decision letter in due course."

I applied as a spouse on an existing Ancestry visa.

Looking on the right to work site using my existing BRP I can see nothing has changed. I am having trouble finding the difference between decided vs grandted/denied. Can anyone provide me with some insight with this email wording?

I must admit the whole process has been a bit of a muck around.

Hi ucugo, How come your old BRP showing 'There is no limit on how long you can stay in the UK.' on 27/06/2019? Is your old BRP number is same as new BRP number?

please update once you get your letter :) I think you will be a couple of days ahead of me. Have you had any luck finding people who received the same wording and had been approved?

Wanted to share my experience, having lurked on this board looking for good news while I prepared my application:

Route: Tier 2 to ILR with 2 dependants -- Super Priority Service
18 June 2019: submitted application online
3 July 2019: 10.30AM appointment at core service point in Croydon, finished about 11.45
3 July 2019: 1.51PM received email confirming leave was granted and BRP to follow

I scanned and uploaded before the appointment --

Passport + two previous passports
Husband and daughter's passports
BRP
Husband and daughter's BRP
Life in the UK pass certificate x 2 (me and my husband)
Most recent payslip
Most recent bank statement showing salary deposited
Document from sponsor confirming employment etc. plus approval of absences from UK
Document from previous Tier 2 sponsor including approval of absences from UK
Marriage certificate
Evidence of cohabitation with husband (7 letters over past two years -- council tax, utility bills, home insurance policy)
Child's UK birth certificate

Overall I liked Sopra Steria staff a lot -- very friendly when compared to same-day service at Lunar House, which I used previously. Wishing everyone luck with their applications! It is such a stressful process but I hope you all have a positive outcome.

However, where we are not able to do this we will complete the application as quickly as possible and refund the super priority visa fee where appropriate’

Hi, what does it mean to "escalate" in this scenario and how do you do that?
Thanks!

Is it Unique Application Number? I think it is at the top of the document checklist pdf, if so.

Hi all

Had my super priority appointment today in Brighton at 10am.

I've heard nothing back from them at this point ...2:42pm. Just checked the right to work website - and it still has my July 8th 2019 as when I can legally work in the UK till.

UGH ... I hate this waiting.
