Re: UKVCAS Super Priority Service

I have finally got my BRP after 25 days waiting..around 17 working days! ILR was approved within 24 hours. I did email my MP, but I think we dont need to email them just for BRP if the application is approved. The online form is ok and they responded within time limits. Hello, Apointment on 30/01/1...

Re: UKVCAS Super Priority Service

Closing the loop for us - appointment 27th December and have finally got the BRP. More good news because we put a complaint in with UKVCAS due to their scanning issue (£200 refund for premium lounge refund) where we had to make 3 trips and HO for not processing within 24 hours (£610 refund) so gett...

Re: UKVCAS Super Priority Service

Has anyone recieved a BRP recently? If so, what was the decision date on your letter? We're still waiting from 16th January. I'm starting to worry UKVI are clearing the application backlog and are processing on time and have now caused the department producing BRPs to fall over. Other threads only s...

Re: UKVCAS Super Priority Service

Did they atleast agree to escalate for you? From what I've read in this forum, many people were told that they can't escalate before 5 working days. I also applied on 28th Jan. Instead of calling them, I'm thinking of emailing on their complaints id. Heads up: the complaints email address has a 20 ...

Re: Is premium lounge always a priority booking

The premium lounge is only a "nicer" appointment (privacy, free food etc). It does not affect your processing time what-so-ever. They scan it and send it to UKVI, and UKVI will process it in due course. You can get free appointments at Core centres (assuming availability) without the extra £200. How...

Re: UKVCAS Super Priority Service

Tomorrow noon is the 5-day mark for me, so hopefully, I receive good news tomorrow. Just trying to stay positive not only for myself but for everyone else waiting to hear. A rather random question, not sure anyone will know it, but what is the earliest and latest (time wise) that email communicatio...

Re: UKVCAS Super Priority Service

I received a call from an unknown number today. The person on the phone said the call is with regards to my ILR application and asked couple of details for verification. I was reminded that I have already escalated few times before so I should wait and not contact henceforth, as the service standar...

Re: Small error on settlement visa cover letter

Why not just have her amend the document by hand? If you want a no-expense-spared route then send a new one. But as I said, I don't think it'll be that material (myself - I am not a professional) but for my own sanity I would just amend it by hand rather than waste £40 and more stress in ensuring th...

Re: Small error on settlement visa cover letter

Change it by hand to August (and annotate the change with your signature if you so desire)?

I hardly think it's going to matter, but for your own sanity's sake I'd just change it by hand.

Re: UKVCAS Super Priority Service

We have to wait 5 days to escalate a response for a 24-hour service? That seems like a bit of a joke on their part. Yeah, hopefully you get your decision before then so you don't have to. Escalating largely does nothing, and you can't speak to someone who actual has a your case information to hand....

Re: HELP -Category A - 6 months or 12 months payslips/statements?

I picked the option for "same amount, continuously" despite getting a raise half-way through the 6 months period. I also attached the letter from employer as requested which included the salary history since the start of the contract. Got no follow up questions, visa was approved.

Sorry she came via a spouse visa.

Is it normal for the NI number to not be printed?
Yes, that's normal. She will have to apply for a NI number separately.

Re: BRP not scanned by sopra steria or asked for?

If HO ask for this, you will need to go back to the Sopra Steria centre for scanning.

This is exactly what happened to us. They wouldn't accept scans by email.
