Re: NIC number with biometric card?

Hi

its only certain Visa's that will have the NI number on the back, I believe its for the employment tier visa's.

My wife just applied for an NI number, as it didn't have one on the BRP.

Re: Called UKBA regarding spouse visa update

Hi

Most priority applications are taking at least 6-8 weeks, and that mostly the straight forwards ones.

As the previous poster said, after 12 weeks you can start to escalate. You have to remember the priority fee does is place your application in front of the queue of non priority applications

Re: UK Visas and Immigration Contact number 02034811736

Hi

They charge a pre-authorised amount of £20 to your chosen card before the call, but you will notice that after a few days it will be actual amount.

I have used the service twice initially there was a £20 charge then it got reduced to the £5-10.

Are you applying from inside or outside the UK?
