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 ...

Re: Next day decision (UK) on the new system - your experiences please

Hi,

So I submitted my application on a Friday and the earliest appointment I could get was the next Tuesday - had to get an out of hours appointment at the lounge as all the free ones were booked out for about 2 weeks.

Attended the appointment and received a response by email about 6 hours later.

Re: UKVCAS Super Priority Service

My super priority experience went very well. I got the appointment booked for 3 days after submitting my application online (it was the earliest I could get). Only available appointment was a 7am at the lounge in London. Paid the £35 to get documents checked. Appointment was on time and only took ab...

Thanks

Is premium lounge always a priority booking

Hi,
I'm trying to book a super premium appointment (next day decision) but the only available appointment is at the Premium Lounge. When I book there is no other option for next day decision. Is premium lounge always a next day decision? I'm applying for flr(m)

Thanks

Thanks for the info and forwarding me to the correct thread.

The agent on the phone told me that it would be done within 4 weeks if I paid th...

Re: Other ways to prove living together for 2+ years

Thanks for the reply. I believe the finances is covered as we have more than the required savings £62.5k. We also have other documentation over the last few years like flight bookings with both of us on them and some other things that might show we've been together for this time. Also money transfer...

ok thanks for your help.

last question... as my current youth mobility visa is still valid, would I be at a great advantage to apply from within the UK while it is still valid? or the same as applying from outside UK?

thanks
