thanks.

Hi All

I've been reading and re-reading all the advice on various topics as to how to secure a Premium Service appt, and like many of you I have been feeling a little insane with the constant refreshing and checking for newly available dates. I am very grateful for all the advice shared on this forum which has given me hope to not give up. I am happy to say that I have just this morning had success after just 2 days! Since reading a post by someone suggesting the new biometric UKVI service would be replacing the Premium Service, I felt compelled to message that this is NOT TRUE but also clear other confusions that I had in the hope it might be helpful to someone.

My husband is up for his ILR 14th December, I was confused with information that I read where it stated we couldn't apply until 28 days prior to the date his visa runs out. This is true, however you can still prepare your ILR application earlier but wait to submit it. You can also pay for the premium service and start searching for available appointments but just be sure that if you do, that you select a date that is before/within 28 days of when the visa expires.

Someone suggested that every day, new appointments are added for the 45th day however I didn't find this and to me it appears that there is no logic whatsoever behind when new appointments are opened up. I literally completed my husband's application on Tuesday 20th November and started the search for a premium appointment but not one single site had any dates (inc Belfast or even Glasgow as I was happy to travel from the Midlands where we live). Then as advised by fellow applicants, I was up till 3am and throughout the night awaiting new appointments to be added for ANY location but again, nothing. I was refreshing all day and night! As I was about to go insane, this morning at 9am I managed to get appointment slots available at Solihull! There were several from next week and over the next 10 days and I have indeed booked an appointment on the 29th November which is a huge relief! And I wish you all the same luck!

Sorry but was this a Premium Service Appointment at Solihull or a UKVCAS appointment? I don't believe the latter make decisions on applications but merely do a document check, scan and biometrics. You can always call them to confirm on 0900 165 6600

Hello,

I am happy to help. I was going through your situation.

The screenshot you displayed is NOT for the super priority service (the new one)- it is for the old premium centres which are closing next week.

What you need to do is to start over a new online application (you can even do it with the same email address) and then at the end of the online application you will be asked whether you would like to submit your application by post (they call it existing service) or you wish to sue the super priority service (they call it new service), you should then select the new service, and once you do you will be redirected to the commercial partner website to complete and book your appointment. Appointments in the new system are easy and available (at least until when I booked), no need to be awake again until midnight, good luck :)

thats right. First you get to choose if you are going to take the new system or the old system. Once you choose New System, you have to choose either normal or priority. i.e., Eith £2400 or 3018.50.

This is the link you need to follow in order to apply online (i.e. using the super priority service), you will need to answer some basic questions first about your application so that the system directs you to the correct online application route (i.e. tier 2 general, transfer etc.):

The screenshot which you provided earlier, looks similar to the one i posted, i was thinking the system might ask me at the payment page which service i would like to use.

There are several posts in this forum where applicants have paid for the 24 hour decision but have not heard for up to five or six days. It appears that while the decision may be made quickly, the letter confirming approval can take several days. In a couple of cases, the BRP has arrived sooner than the letter.

Regarding Old system, I think you have keep checking for appointments often to find one.

I just got a call saying my super priority appointment (new system) next week at Cambridge has to be cancelled due to technical problems.

Managed to rebook for Friday 30 November at Croydon. I travel to the US for work on 5 December. Does anyone know with these delayed 'next day' decisions if can you travel while you wait for a decision?

No, applicants are presently receiving letters, not emails.

I would like to use the new system but the system is taking me to old link if i click premium service appointment through the link you gave. I am guessing if i simply click on "apply online" and not the premium service link , then i will land on the same page as you, so far it asked for basic questions e.g name and email address however still not asked about old or new service
Thanks
