“Priority” and Super Priority” Visa Services Temporarily Suspended

Sponsor Licence Application

UK Visas and Immigration (“UKVI”) has suspended “Priority” and “Super Priority” services for new study, work, and family visa applications.

UKVI will prioritise applications under the Ukraine Family Scheme in response to the humanitarian crisis caused by the invasion of Ukraine. Applications under established routes of entry to the UK may therefore take longer than normal to process.

Standard visitor applications are currently taking an average of 6 weeks to process.

“In-country” applications (seeking permission to extend stay within the UK) are unaffected.
