Applied for ILR Route : SET (O) - TIER 2 (GENERAL) Main applicant only Super Priority Service
Date application sent : 29th May 2019
Date Biometrics Enrolled : 6th June 2019 in Southampton
Approval/Refusal E-mail Received : 6th June 2019 (2 hours later)
Approval Letter / BRP Card Received : 11th June 2019


and for the dependent:
Applied for ILR Route : SET (O) - PBS Dependent Super Priority Service
Date application sent : 14th June 2019
Date Biometrics Enrolled : 23th June 2019 in Croydon (place was super busy but all sorted in less than an hour).
Approval/Refusal E-mail Received : 24th June 2019 (22 hours later)
Approval Letter / BRP Card Received : Waiting

UKVCAS staff confirmed if you apply during the weekend using the Priority it counts as you applied in the following Monday (which I found bullshit because if you pay for a priority service, you might as well get it).

Thanks for all your help and see you next year (new soap opera in my life now called citizenship).

Thank you for your Super Priority Application.

We have attempted to process your application within the 24-hour service standard, unfortunately it appears your application will not be processed within the 24-hour target.

This is because your application raises exceptionally complex issues and we require further time to consider your case thoroughly and reach a decision.
