The Home Office has recently introduced a new initiative whereby applicants applying for Settlement or No Time Limit in the UK, using the postal service, may be able to get a faster reply to their visa application.
By using this service, applicants applying for Settlement in the UK, who have used forms SET (AF), SET (F), SET (LR), SET (M) and SET (O), may be able to get a decision on their application within 5 working days if they have already submitted their applications by post.
The process involves paying an additional fee and completing the relevant application form to expedite the application. It must be noted that not all applicants who apply for this service are successful. In guidance released by the Home Office, only a limited number of requests received each day will be accepted.
If you require any further information on an application for Settlement in the UK or on the above-mentioned Home Office service, please do not hesitate to contact Gherson where a member of our team will be happy to assist you.
