UKVI extends optional Super Priority Visa service in India


Super Priority Visa is an optional paid service that customers in India can choose to purchase, in addition to the visa fee, to receive a faster decision time on their visa application. Customers who choose SPV will be able to receive a decision on their UK visa application by the end of the next working day. The standard processing time for UK visas is 15 working days, which does not include evenings or weekends. Customers can also choose the Priority visa service to receive a decision within five working days.

The eight new locations, in addition to Delhi, that Indians can apply for SPV from are Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chandigarh, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai (South) and Pune. This is valid for the following UK visa categories:

  • Visitor and Transit visas
  • Skilled Worker visas
  • Temporary Worker visas (T5)
  • Student visas

All customers travelling to UK during the pandemic should be aware of the current border, quarantine and testing regulations in place.
