Individuals applying for UK entry clearance sometimes require a very quick decision from the Home Office. This can be due to a wide range of personal circumstances. If you qualify for the Premium & Same Day Visa Services, and your application is straightforward, you should receive a response within 24 hours. 

When you are already dealing with an urgent situation, trying to get a fast turnaround on your visa will only add to the pressure. That is why at Stevens Machi Solicitors we aim to make the process as quick and stress-free as possible. We will help you gather all the information required for your application and arrange the appointment at your local premium service centre.

Premium Service appointments are in high demand, so it is important to get in touch as soon as you can. One of our lawyers will also come with you on the day of your appointment to provide representation, guidance and support.

Premium & Same Day Visa Services: Eligibility

To qualify for the Home Office’s Premium Visa Service, the applicant must already be in the UK and:

  • wish to prolong their stay in the country; or
  • wish to apply for indefinite leave to remain.

If you are considering the Premium Service for your visa application, it’s important to be aware that there are a number of individuals that are unable to use this route. These include (but are not limited to):

  • Elderly dependants.
  • Business persons, sole representatives or investors.
  • Self-employed lawyers.

There are also a number of circumstances, that if applicable to you, will prevent you from using the Premium Service. For example:

Further, if your case is particularly complicated, it may take longer than 24 hours to process, or your application may even be considered inappropriate for the service.

If you are unsure whether you can use the Premium Visa Service, get in touch with the team at Stevens Machi Solicitors. We will consider your circumstances carefully and let you know if you qualify. If you are not eligible, we will offer alternative solutions in order to get you as close to your immigration goals as possible.

Premium & Same Day Visa Services: Process

You must attend a premium service centre in person. There are seven centres in the UK; the closest one for and other London-based applicants is located in Croydon. Appointments must be booked in advance (up to 28 days ahead) and the fee for using the service must be paid at the same time as booking.

The fee for the Premium Service is £500, and this is on top of the standard cost for the type of visa you are applying for. If you need to book an appointment out of standard office hours, an additional payment of £63 is required. The appointment can be booked online – we can take care of this stage for you, meaning you will have one less thing to worry about.

Applicants must bring their completed visa application form with them to their appointment, as well as all the correct supporting documents. If you do not bring the right paperwork with you, your appointment will be delayed so that extra checks can be carried out, and in some cases, it may even be cancelled.

To avoid any unnecessary delays, our expert immigration lawyers will make sure you have all the required documentation with you and that you have fulfilled all the other requirements of the Premium Service process. We will also represent you during your appointment to make sure the process goes as smoothly as possible.
