hi there’s no availability for priority premium service for VFs in Pakistan . U can only do priority or standard service application . Often it take 60 working days for Pakistan application.

It's priority service but the website says it's not available in all centres including Lahore, Karachi, Islamabad, Mirpur. You can contact them for details. It's a good option to avail but since it's not working right now, just go for standard application I guess.

Thanks for the response
They must have recently stopped this service? I know of 2 people who have had there applications processed and accepted within 30days using the vfs premium service( they did there applications approx 2months ago)
Has anyone used the priorty service? And what is the timeline like compared to a standard application?
Also I have spoke to a solicitor in Pakistan and he says the premium service can be selected when my wife goes for her biometrics, has anyone done anything similar or used this before?
Thank you for your responses

I applied through priority service on 12 Dec 2018 from Lahore, documents sent 18 Dec, application ready for ECO email on 8 Jan 2019, visa stamped 16 Jan 2019, called to collect on 21 Jan, visa valid from 25 Jan. I had previous refusals and overstay and considering xmas and new year holidays, it was really quick. I would definitely recommend priority service. I have seen few other members applying through priority after me.
When you go for biometrics, they always ask you if you wanted any extra services including priority, SMS notification, etc. I paid for priority service online but paid for sms service in the centre. This is why I was saying you should call all the centres to see if they have service available. Ask her to take bank card or cash (preferred) with her, just in case the service is available in the centre.
