  • LAWYER RESPONSE Get a faster decision on your visa or settlement application

    Hi,
    My dad has applied to change his EU Settlement permit and to get his biometric residence permit under the EU settlement scheme. He will get this based on his relationship with me as a dependent parent on the EU child. However, I found out recently that he could choose a priority service to get a faster decision on his application. That is if he had paid the £500 fee before he went for his biometrics appointment.
    Now my question is, as I didnt see the priority service choice on my fathers application when he applied from inside the UK. Does anyone know where it is and if I can choose it for my mothers application? I just don't want to miss it. Does it come up as a choice at the Sopra Steria/UKVCAS website before you book the biometrics appointment? Thank you for any help.
    Kind regards,
    Ellen

    Olga M (lawyer) I wasn't aware that there were priority options for EUSS applications, would you be able to comment on this?

        Thanks, that was also my impression all along. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something.

          Morning,

          Now that one of our lawyers has confirmed what I thought was the case, it is my understanding these priority services are only for visa and ILR applications via routes other than the EUSS, there aren't such services for EUSS applications.
