Update: 5th August
It has been 7 working days since my biometrics and I haven’t received any update (no decision email/letter). I’ve phoned UKVI. Once it is past the standard service time (5 days for super priority) they can take your information and pass it onto the Home Office. They said the HO should get back to me by phone or email within 5 wworking days from now.
