Re: UKVCAS Super Priority Service

My husband has just received a letter of approval for his ILR application, today, 17 November 2018. He was at Birmingham UKVCAS on 13th November. Received no email or letter until about 30 minutes ago when a letter came from the home office, dated 14th November, confirming approval and delivery of ...

Re: Premium Service appointment booking issue for ILR (LR)

That is probably why those who paid for the 24 hour decision option are not getting decisions within that time frame at all! The caseworkers still have to scroll through pages and pages of required documents, now digitized, instead of paper! Ugggg... they are probably computer illiterate as well , ...

Re: Premium Service appointment booking issue for ILR (LR)

No the documents scan have to be done through sopra speria website. That will be only once the payment is processed at UKba website and application is submitted. I was talking about only the online application form on UKba website where details need to be filled only without uploading any documents...

Re: Premium Service appointment booking issue for ILR (LR)

Well I have just spoken to the UKVISA helpline, the lady on the phone has been very clear that the online application date is the relevant date for ILR LR and it has to be within the 28 days of completing ten years. I haven't received a response on my email query yet but hopefully I will receive it...

I’m starting to wonder whether those who went to the premium lounge in London for the super priority service are getting their visa quicker than the Surinder Singh route points anywhere else?!

Re: UKVI Digital Changes, No PEO/PSCs from October 2018?

I too am hoping to hear from Loupiol, particularly as there is another post on an applicant’s experience at the Birmingham Centre which did not go as smoothly as Loupiol's. In fact that applicant has not heard back from the HO even though he paid for the 24 hour decision. Yes I have been following ...
