Applied using AccessUK

Priority service
Online application: 30-05-2019
Biometrics enrolled: 17-06-2019 at Islamabad
Documents scanned at VFS centre in Smethwick: 18-06-2019 (waited for roughly 3 hours for this)
ECO email stating that application has been received and is currently being processed for consideration by an entry clearance officer: 25-06-2019

Currently on day 15 since biometrics and am tempted to contact UKVI but am holding off. Also, this is my second application. My first one was also a priority visa and from biometrics (02-10-2018) to collection email (12-11-2018) it was a neat 30 working days. A PSA: my contact for collection email sat in my spam mail box for a good week before I had the sense to check it so always double check junk/spam email folders.
Email received stating that application is being considered and is currently awaiting a decision: 07-07-2019

Now on 17 working days since biometrics. I did end up emailing to ask for a status update :shock:
Update: Passport collection email received: 19-07-2019
Husband will collect passport on Monday and inshallah all will be well. 25 working days from biometrics to processed application.
