I applied for the 5-day priority service but heard nothing for 9 working days after submitting my biometrics. I was so worried. On the 10th working day (4th July), I received a registered letter saying that my permit had been approved - I received no email. On the 5th of July, I received an email saying that my BRP would be delivered that day. I received it in the afternoon.
