What are they?
Many migrants already in the UK would like to get their visa application sorted out immediately, rather than have to wait several months for the Home Office to process them.
For one thing this takes away a lot of the stress revolving round the question: will my visa be granted or not? If you can get a decision immediately you know where you stand straightaway and you can get on with your life accordingly.
And, for another thing, for some people – particularly those who need to travel outside the UK frequently – it is not at all convenient to be deprived of their passport for any long period of time, which is what will happen when a visa application is submitted to the Home Office by post.
For such people the Home Office Premium Same-Day Service can be a very good option. This is a service whereby some – but not all – types of visa application can be processed by the Home Office on the same day. The applicant (accompanied by their lawyer or alone) comes to the same-day service centre with their completed application and the Home Office will process it there and then.
The main same-day service centres are in Croydon (in South London), Birmingham, Sheffield, Liverpool, Cardiff, Glasgow and Belfast. There is no restriction on which centre an applicant can use: someone living for example in London can go to any same-day service centre in the UK.
The applicant or their lawyer has to make the same-day service appointment online. Sometimes the applicant cannot get an appointment on the day they want in the location they want and they have to search around for an appointment somewhere else. But it can often be worth the extra travelling to get an appointment on the date and time of day that is convenient.
Which types of visa can be processed under the same-day service scheme?
Family visa applications (eg spouse/civil partner/unmarried partner), Tier 2 Worker, Tier 4 Student and Tier 5 Temporary Worker visa applications can all be processed by same-day service, and this includes applications for further leave to remain and indefinite leave to remain (“settlement”). Applicants who hold leave under some other categories can also apply for further leave to remain and indefinite leave to remain via same-day service.
But European applications (with very few exceptions), Tier 1 visa applications, asylum/human rights applications and British citizenship applications cannot be processed via same-day service. And the same-day service centre may not be able to process an application if they deem it to be exceptionally complicated.
How much does it cost?
As you might expect, there is an extra charge for a same-day premium service application, which is £590. So the applicant has to pay the normal application fee, plus the IHS health charge (if applicable), plus an extra fee of £590.
But for many migrants it is £590 well spent.

The Home Office sometimes refuses applications for asylum or humanitarian protection. On occasion Home Office decision-making is harsh or unfair, and it is well-known that it is more difficult for asylum-seekers from some countries to succeed than it is for those from others. For this reason, statistics about asylum application success rates are not entirely […]

If you are a non-EEA national and you want to study a degree-level course in the UK, but you do not have a sufficiently high level of qualifications, you might consider studying a UK foundation course. A foundation course is a course offered by a college or university which lasts typically for one year, and […]

Good news for nurses, doctors and other medical professionals from outside the EEA. Since 6 July the Tier 2 visa limit has been relaxed and medical professionals are no longer subject to the limit. This makes it much easier for nurses and other medics to apply for Tier 2 visas, and there is no longer […]

The best service I ever had , very friendly , reliable services. We successfully got out married visa with get uk visa Ltd. I highly recommend them
Amazing service. My wife and I had our cases handled by Adel, which managed everything perfectly on all aspects. Everything was clarified upfront and the office was very responsive to any question we had during the process. Both of our visas were approved. GET UK VISA is highly recommended, affordable and professional.
Korous has been an amazing help. I needed advice on Tier 2, Tier 4 and visitor visas and he was incredibly knowledgeable about all different visas and the UK Visa and Immigration system. I never felt rushed and he went well out of his way to help me even on a Sunday, which should have been his day off! I highly recommend Get UK Visa for anyone with Visa questions. They are warm, friendly and very professional.
Excellent service! This solicitor office is a big help, they give a lot of advice. They are doing a great job. Would recommend it to all.
