Home Office Premium Same-Day Service Visa Applications

March 19, 2018 898

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.

  • review rating 5  A great service provided from very professional team. I applied spouse visa after Our visa refused due to my first Solisitor mistake about documents. I came to The Get UK Visa team and received very good service and they showed everything I should know and about documents without any rush and mistake. I already applied for appeal and I was so confused about next step, they really helped me and without any extra charge we withdraw our appeal and apply again. My wife visa granted a few weeks after and I’m so happy about future. I really really appreciate to Adel that was so helpful and compassionate like a brother.
