What is like to book an appointment with UKVI Premium Service Centres?

As we all know, booking an appointment at one of the UKVI Premium Service Centres, especially Croydon is a painful task! Most applicants will want to make use of the Premium Services where they can, due to some postal applications taking 6 months to process, not everyone can be without their passport and unable to travel whilst their application is being considered. However, with limited availability and the number of applications, this is not always possible, forcing people to submit by post.

However, if you are not aware of this already, those applying using a one of the following forms:







Can request a Premium Upgrade once they have submitted their application by post, by completing the online form and submitting the consideration by email, if the request is accepted, you will be contacted by 5pm to pay an additional fee of £610.00 to UK Visas & Immigration.

The request is not guaranteed to be granted and is subject to availability, it also does not guarantee that the application will be approved.
