Yes this 'date of application' situation seems not clear. My lawyers too have advised to hold from submitting as they are waiting for confirmation from UKVI. The old postal system took the date of application as date of postage. I think it is same for the new system. Maybe there is some clue in the guidance. Will look
Thanks neilajgaonkar. I really hope it’s not the date of submission of the online application. It would be obviously be better if it were the date of the walk in priority service..at least then those people who need to book for December can book a slot ahead of time instead of waiting until a few days before to book. I’m not sure how easy it will be to get an appointment so close to when we need it. As you may know, the former premium service appointments were booked 45 days in advance ...
When I spoke to UKVI they said it will be the date of premium service as you are not submitting your documents and biometrics with online application (which makes sense).

So application wont be considered without documents therefore submission date would be the date of premium service when you submit your documents and biometrics.

Hi Nice111,
Thanks so much for the information. That would make sense! I’m assuming then I can go ahead and start filling out the online form and make a booking for priority service for the week of December 17? Have you had a chance to fill out the form online and book a priority service? Or has anyone else on this forum booked for December?

I haven't submitted my online application as I am looking for dates in Mid Jan 19 so still have time I guess.

Can anybody who has recently booked plz shed some light on how far dates you are getting for premium service (NEW SYSTEM, VCAS) particularly in Croydon.

Please can I ask one question? I am filling Online SET O form. In immigration history when you put same date for leaving and coming back, system does not accept that. What should we do in this case? Thanks

I booked PSC appointment for FLR (M) at sheffield for 29th Nov on 7th Nov by creating an account just to book the PSC and not the online form filling method. I was suppose to carry the downloaded filled paper form with me to the PSC. However as of 9th Nov the FLR (M) form has been updated and it says that this form is only for applicants who require fee waiver. And all other applicants should apply online. So I am confused now whether my PSC appointment is valid? Since I cannot carry this new paper form with me to PSC. So do I need to cancel the PSC appoitment and rebook using online method? In that case i will have to pay the fees again which is a pain. Any ideas what should i do...

Hello everyone, this is my experience for booking an appointment with new system for December. i filled online form, chose new system, paid. then got to final steps to upload a few documents and book an appointment. i was transferred to another site (something steria) and there i could book an appointment for december. you put postcode and it gives you a few centres near you. i chose London as i live there and i could book an appointment for example for 1 December but i have to pay additional £260. i haven't booked anything yet because Im waiting for other centres to appear in the system. hope this helps. if you have any questions feel free to ask

You say you haven't booked yet, so how will you return? Have you been given a URL to return to your booking on the Steria site or do you have to go back through the gov.uk site first?

Hi Asselmulgrove, thanks for the update on the new system. Regarding your December appointment, is it within your 28 days before your current visa expires? I just wanted to gauge how much in advance I can book an appointment. My 28 days before expiry is December 17.... so I’m not really sure when I can start booking online with the new system. MAny thanks

Hi there.

You mentioned you had to upload few documents, what kind of documents to be uploaded? Incase of premium appointment all documents and biometrics should be provided on the day of appointment, shouldn't they?

Have they asked financial requirement details as well as employer details in there? Also what options do we have incase of change of circumstances between online submission and premium appointment?

Any guidance will be much appreciated.

Thanks

They ask to upload partners declaration at the end of the online application.
That’s it for now. I haven’t booked an appointment yet as waiting for more centres to appear in the system.
As soon as I book an appointment I will let you know what they ask and how I did it.
You have to apply online in any case scenario now even if you want to apply by post or premium. At some point of the online application they will ask you if you want to choose to apply by post or using super premium service.

I am so lost. I have booked my premiuim appointment for FLR M yesterday. 9th. And my appointment is in 10 days time. Obviously as you guys have seen it now says you can only apply online and has a new 11/2018 version of the form which is only to be used in the event of fee waiver. So my question is do i still go to my appointment in 10 days time as it is all paid for etc and do i take the previous version of the form or this new 11/2018 version which doesn't apply to me as I am not applying for my fees to be waved.

It says there that you can book your appointment 28 days in advance. So I think in your case you need to book appointment 28 days before 17 dec.
Thank you for the info and advice 😁 please keep us posted once you make your appointment booking 🙏🏽
