Get your visa in just five working days*… for an extra £400

Get a quicker decision on your visa application if you’ve already applied by post: what forms you need, the cost and how long it takes

  • There are significant caveats. It costs an additional £400 on top of the normal application fee. The service is only available for applications on these forms:
  • SET (AF)
  • SET (F)
  • SET (LR)
  • SET (M)
  • SET (O)
  • Biometric residence permit for those already settled in the UK

Only the first five applicants per day will be accepted, they say, although I would guess that will change once the service has been tested.

And you might not get your visa in five days anyway if further checks are needed or you need to go to a premium service centre in person.

There is a form to fill in. Of course. Follow the link below for further details.
