Thank you for responding. Please did you have to do anything like calling or emailing them before your passport was returned?msjiao wrote: ↑Fri Jun 15, 2018 8:54 amMy last application to Tier 2 General with Priority Service delayed, passport returned 4 weeks after biometrics. The decision was made within a week. I have no idea about why it took so much time to return the passport.
I am wondering if the Priority Service really helps to speed up the processing.
I agree with you. Priority to UKVI means a decision will be taken soon, I guess it does not include time for passport return. Thank you for sharing your experience, it is really upsetting to wait for passport to be returned after decision has been made weeks ago.msjiao wrote: ↑Fri Jun 15, 2018 3:05 pmI sent an email (from here) to query the status of my application, and they replied the decision was made; after a week, the passport still didn't return. So I sent another email, and they replied the same thing ignoring all my other questions about my passport.
Then I went to the visa application center and they told me that I could complain about their service (from here), I didn't complain but asked the staff at the application center to track my passport and let me know the result.
I don't know what's the best practice to handle this, but I am really upset about the fact they don't treat priority application as priority. Maybe they just mean "the decision will be made sooner" instead of "the passport will be returned sooner". For the applicants, we need both are processed sooner, otherwise, it's meaningless.
Hi, I also applied for the Tier 2 priority visa from TLS contact in Munich, Germany 4 working weeks ago. I submitted my application on 27.07, and had my biometrics collected on 30.07.korektur wrote: ↑Fri Jun 22, 2018 12:28 pmHi, I applied on 12th of June in Germany with Priority Service and still waiting for decision. It was 8 working days now.
Hi when did you applied for visa. I also applied for priority visa on 20 Aug along with my friend.. my friend received email that the visa is processed... but I didn’t received any email
You may check with their helpline number as 5 working days have past or They might update you in a while since it is the same day when your friend got email on the decision. Do let us know in case you get it
I believe there is a delay. I submitted documents on August 10th in priority service in chennai. Decision taken on 28th August only and still didn't get any mails.
Thanks for posting. Hope there is a delay for my application only. I need to wait and see whats the resultAravxr wrote: ↑Thu Aug 30, 2018 5:41 amWe applied our T2 General in Chennai VFS for a priority processing.

My wife received SMS day before yesterday that a decision has been made and the passport can be collected at the VAC. We collected it yesterday and the visa was granted.

VFS SMS - 21 Aug (that the application is with ECO)

I'm still waiting to receive updates from UKVI or VFS on my application. Priority takes 5 days and today is my 7th day waiting for a decision.
