International Priority and Super Priority Visa Services Suspended

UKVI have announced that ‘priority’ and ‘super priority’ visa services have been temporarily suspended for new study, work and family visa applications.

22/03/2022

This is because UKVI is prioritising Ukraine Family Scheme applications in response to the humanitarian crisis caused by the invasion of Ukraine, and so applications for study, work and family visas may take longer to process.

At the moment, standard visit visas and transit visas are taking an average of 6 weeks to process (rather than the usual 3-week processing time).

For further details on current timing for UK visas from overseas, please see the UKVI website here.

The information contained in this update is correct as of 22nd March 2022.
