SUPER PREMIUM SERVICE – Exclusive Service for UK Visa Decision Quick usually in 24 Hours
Sometimes, you need an instant decision on an immigration matter, and fortunately, we can help you get one. Using the Home Office’s Super Premium Service allows you to submit your visa extension or settlement application quickly, get your biometrics done, and have an answer usually within 24 hours.
What are the advantages of using the Super Premium Service?
When you use the Super Premium Service, UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) send a courier to you to collect your application and paperwork. An immigration officer then comes to your home to obtain your biometric info. The UKVI will then contact you the next day with their decision on whether or not your application has been approved.
You may be able to use the Home Office’s Super Premium Service if you are:
- applying to extend your visa
- applying to stay permanently in the UK (indefinite leave to remain)
Yes! It can be a cost-effective solution.
The Home Office’s Super Premium Service can be used for four main applicants, and up to 10 people in total when considering dependents. Given there is a fee of £10,500 per visit, plus the premium service fee, the more people who apply at the same time, the greater the value.
For example, the two families could combine to use the Super Premium Service. The four adults would be the main applicants and their children can apply at the same time (as long as there are fewer than six in total). This means each family only has to invest £5,250 to obtain the multitude of benefits associated with the Super Premium Service.

- you’re applying under the transitional arrangements to extend your discretionary leave after three years
- you’re applying to settle in the UK after six years discretionary leave
Transitional arrangements refer to where applicants who were granted leave under the discretionary leave policy before 9th July 2012 will continue to be considered under this particular discretionary leave policy through to the time they acquire ILR, provided they continue to qualify for leave, and their situation remains the same.

One of our success stories
Mrs M and her family had been living in the UK for the past five years. As a senior executive of a top firm, she has a busy, successful professional and personal life. Her two children and husband have settled in well, and consider the UK their home.
Mrs M had finally booked a long overdue family holiday, but with all her responsibilities, she did not apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) for herself and her family. Suddenly, only days before they were set to leave she needed urgent help.
A Y & J Solicitors immediately responded to Mrs M’s instruction and were swiftly able to gather and complete all her documentation and required forms. The Home Office’s Super Premium Service was booked, and Mrs M was thrilled to have UKVI staff come to her house to take biometrics and signatures of the whole family in between packing. The following day, the whole family could celebrate their new ILR status with their dream holiday abroad.
