Hi

Priority visa for my husband

Application submitted online: 28/05/2019
Documents submitted via Vfs smethwick 31/05/2019
Please note I waited at 8am outside the Visa Application Centre in which I was seen to straight away and documents were uploaded with in an hour. I paid £75 for this service.
Biometric submitted Lahore: 03/06/2019
Husband was offered a date for the 13th of June but as he didn’t want to wait he went and asked lahore Centre to change his appointment. They say walk in but really it’s not a walk in option.

Sponsor contact: not yet
Employer contact: not yet

I will keep you updated with any more development

I wish everyone good luck 🥰
10/6/2019 received email after 5 working days
Thank you for your online application which has been received at the UK Decision Making Centre. Your application is currently being prepared for consideration by an Entry Clearance Officer.

Please don't send me PMs asking for immigration advice on posts that are on the open forum. If I haven't responded there, it's because I don't have the answer. I'm a moderator, not a legal professional.
