Home office is automatically sending refund of super priority fees if they have failed to process within 24 hours. I received a communication dated 24 December by registered post today stating refund of 610 in the card where the original payment was made from in due course.

I did not ask for refund but it has come automatically so I hope all of you whose were delayed also will get the refund also. My sopra appointment was 8.12 and decision was dated 12.12. Thanks.

Just for the benefit of everybody who is waiting and extremely disappointed with the delay despite paying for the Super Priority service. In my experience, if your application is delayed, for no reason and without any email correspondence from the HO requesting further information, for more than 5 working days, it is probably stuck somewhere and somehow in the system and without any push it remains there. I would advise you to contact your local MP with a strong email as this will help you to get your application move out of that Limbo state. I do not think those escalation calls help any bit at all. Those guys, not all of them; some are nice and understand the painful wait, that we call are so frustrated bunch that they do not even have the decency to provide you with the correct information or worse they do not even have it.

I will strongly pursue for the refund and any direction from someone who has got it till now will be appreciated.

Good luck for those who are waiting! Keep pushing. Thanks a lot everyone.

Hi Himanshu
Who did you push for your application? You have submitted on 10Dec and got decision from home office on 29Dec- what all you have done to push your case ? Have you written to your MP or some other steps?
Thanks

Hi,

Here is my situation for SET(O) under Super Priority Service.

Application submitted online & Sopra Steria/Biometrics appointment is booked for 2019 Jan 12.

Couple of questions:

1) If there is a mistake in the application at this stage what can be done? Now after submission I think I made a mistake while entering the dates in the absences from the UK section, instead of putting 1-Feb-2014 I put 11-Feb-2014 as an exit date from the UK. Even though those 10 days difference is not going to hit the 180 days rule I wonder what's the best thing to do now?

2) While we await a decision (say decision not received in 24 hours to 5 days), can I travel outside the UK (say to Dubai with my passport and current valid BRP) and return after 1 week and receive the decision and new BRP if its ready?

Hi There,

1. I guess noting can be done once the application is submitted, however you can write this onto the cover letter, the important dates the caseworker determines are from passport entry/exit stamps, if you have that ticket, you can probably supply that as well.

2. As I am aware you can't leave the country once the application is being submitted.

Hey,

What my understanding is when you attend the appointment, they check the quality of uploaded documents (don't forget to take originals with you, whilst they didn't check mine), approve the documents and send your application. The guy at appointment asked my permission to send the application. I myself uploaded/deleted a few times (to organize better) but all before the appointment.

and Yes, at the appointment if you ask them to scan and upload something else, they will do that. Your application as I am aware can't be changed but the documents at appointment can be shuffled or updated or you can do yourself.

Hey,

Just guessing, maybe its worthwhile asking the sopera steria if the guy looking your documents have forwarded actually your application and biometerics to home office? My understanding is sopera steria sends some sort of confirmation to home office and after that the case worker start looking into it.

Compliments of the season!

I have been a silent follower and wanted to share my experience with the UKVCAS Super Priority Service:

There's been debates on what the 'date of application' should be. So I decided to follow @mahmoudsayed86 footstep by submitting my application before my qualifying round but my date of appointment was within. I submitted a cover letter without explaining anything about date of application. It seems ones application is not valid until supporting documents are submitted by Sopras.

Application Type: SET LR

Application Submitted: December 13, 2018.

Appointment: December 27, 8:30am at Birmingham. Paid extra £100 as it was out of hours. Documents with biometrics submitted by agent around 10:15am

Generic email received at 2:00pm same day that I should provide my biometric data or ignore if done.

ILR Approval Letter received: December 31, 2018 at about 10:00am.

Waiting for the BRP

All the best to everyone waiting and I wish you a prosperous New Year!
