UKVI launches Super Priority Visa service in Sydney
From 16 January 2023, those applying for a UK visa in Sydney, Australia, will have the option of paying to get a faster decision on their application.
Customers in specific regions of the world can choose to pay for a Super Priority Visa (SPV) in addition to the visa fee to receive a quicker response to their visa application. Currently, no new family or settlement applications are eligible for the programme.
Customers who use SPV can learn the outcome of their application for a UK visa by the end of the following working day.
Currently, the Super Priority Visa Service costs £956 in addition to the usual visa application charge.
A standard UK visa takes 15 working days to process; however, because of evenings, weekends, and national holidays, certain applications may take longer.
For each visa category, the most recent waiting times for visa decisions are available on gov.uk. Additional details on the prioritised services for applicants outside of the UK are also included in this.
