Hi all,

A bit of background information on my case:

Application: ILR through 5 years Tier 2 visa. Set (o)
Submission date: 2 Oct
Service: Super priority service

Appointment: Croydon centre, free appointment £0 with no extra service
Date: 29 Oct

I attended my appointment this morning and am just wondering if anyone had similar experience.

My company paid for a solicitor to go through my mandatory/ supporting documents and uploaded everything for me after I had submitted my application on 2 Oct. Since the solicitor had reviewed everything, I booked a free appointment at Croydon without extra services.

This morning when I attended the appointment, the staff pointed me straight to enroll my biometrics (pictures and fingerprints) and she verified my passport details. She also asked me to confirm that I am happy to submit my application. I was told everything is done and I should have the decision by tomorrow. She did NOT check any of my original documents.

My queries:
1) I thought she was going to verify and check my original documents. I asked the staff if I need to take anything out for her to see but she said no. Is this normal?

2) The whole process only lasted about 10mins and all I did was to enroll my biometrics and got my passport checked. Other people on the forum said they had to wait around to be seen again. Did I miss something?

3) I haven't got an email about my documents being submitted/ received. Shouldn't I receive a notification from UKVI once I have been to the appointment?

Can someone please comment/ share their appointment experience? Would be helpful if you also clarify if you booked a free appointment or you have paid for it.

this is completely normal!!, they will check if you have bought document checking service(£35 or so) if available.

I have done my bio metrics last week and received the approval email from HO within 3 hours, waiting for BRP to arrive.

Application type: FLR (AF), first ext. from fiance visa
Date of application: 13th Oct
Service type: Super priority service
Appointment centre: Croydon
Biometrics appointment: 22nd Oct
Email decison: waiting
Additional information request: none
Written decision: waiting

Really stressful. The main reason we went for priority service is because we wanted to minimize the wait period as it is such a stressful time being in limbo. This has actually been more stressful :cry:

Anyway, I have been following all of these posts so thought I should contribute!

Because we were advised to as my husband is in the armed forces and this type will allow time spent on foreign bases to count towards ILR. Is this not correct? :shock:

When trying to upload documents on the UKVCAS website, I dont see any options under the mandatory documents section. Would anyone know why that might be so? I see loads of categories under the optional documents list though.

No, not yet. Just the email confirming that it has been successful. It took just a bit under 24 hrs for the decision to arrive. I am not expecting my BRP until next week.

Just an update on my Tier-2 General Change of Employer application

Date of application: 11th October
Type: Super Priority
Date of biometrics: 21st October

No response for several days. Called UKVI after 3 days. They said wait for 5 working days. Called again after 5 working days. They said as you have applied through lawyer you need to get his confirmation that he has not received decision letter. My lawyer was on leave so had to wait until 1st November. Lawyer confirmed he hasn't received any communication.

1st November: Called UKVI they said they will respond within 5 working days.
4th November: UKVI responded that there was a technical error at Sopra Steria due to which UKVI did not receive biometrics and the super priority fee will be refunded. I don't need to do anything as this can be resolved by Sopra Steria.

Hopefully I will get the Visa soon! :)

I have received the approval email today! Now have to wait for BRP.

The employers lawyer has said that I can start work now even without BRP. But I can see the below here: https://www.gov.uk/tier-2-general/extend-your-visa
"You should not start your new job until you’ve received your biometric residence permit with your new permission."

I can see some posts on this forum that say you can begin work from your CoS start date even if you haven't received BRP. Is this correct? I want to apply for ILR soon and don't want this to affect my application. So would like a confirmation.

Kindly ask your tier 2 specific questions in the tier 2 sub forum. These questions are not relevant to this topic.

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.
Hi,

Could you please let me know how you book the super priority service? Do you get any option to book the super priority service or do you have to book it separately from Sopra stereo? Any help will be a great help.Thaks

You choose it if given the option in the online form process before payment. If you do not get an option for it, then it means it is not available.

Hi,

This UKVCAS super priority service is only available with sopra steria or is it also available with home office centres? Does new Set (M) ILR forms gives you option to apply directly to home office under old system & receive decisions on same day or its super priority service with sopra steria and receive decision on next working day ? Thanks and any help will be a great help !!

You can only apply through ukcvas sopra steria. You cannot apply at a home office centre anymore. The Home office premium service centres have been closed for a year now.

You get your service options online before you pay.

I have applied my ILR application through my solicitor on 2nd of Nov ( Saturday ) and did my biometric enrol with the scanning service on 3rd of Nov ( Sunday) Super Priority service.

However i still have not heard anything from HO also my solictor has not received any response from HO.

I wonder why they are taking this time still I applied for super Priority.

No idea what is happening. getting scared now.

Applied for ILR Route: Tier 2 General 5 year route same employer (Super priority)
Date of application submitted and paid: 03/11/2019
Date Biometrics Enrolled: 04/10/2019 @ 09:30 am @ Manchester Premium Lounge (paid £125)
Approval/Refusal Received : Confirmation email came through 05/11/2019 @ 14:00
BRP Card Received : waiting

Few points to mention:
1) the Right to work website doesn't work for me to check the status, yesterday I received the approval email but the website is still displaying this
'We can't show your record
You will need to prove your right to work by showing an employer your identity document – your EU passport or national identity card, or biometric residence document.'.

2) Email of approval comes from a new email(home.office.atlas at notifications.service.gov.uk) and the format is different, Looks more like a Letter that is sent to home address.

Dear xxxxxxxx

Ref: xxxxxxx(your application number)

Your application for indefinite leave to remain in the UK has been successful.
What happens next
You will receive your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) by courier within 7 working days. It is your BRP, not this letter, is the official document that grants you status.
