SAME DAY VISA EXTENSION, VISA TRANSFER, FURTHER LEAVE TO REMAIN AND SETTLEMENT APPLICATIONS
You can have your visa extended, visa transferred into a new passport or Settlement visa granted through the same day service. That is when your application can be lodged by you or by your lawyer to the UK Border Agency and the application is normally considered in one day, usually within a few hours.
Legal Centre's lawyers are duly accredited to lodge the same day/premium service/fast track applications at the UK BA Premium Service Centres (formerly PEOs). The Legal Centre lawyers have been successfully lodging same day/fast track/premium service visa applications on behalf of their clients since 2007. If a problem or some uncertainty arises our lawyers can interact with the UK Border Agency caseworker and direct him or her at the relevant documents or issues. It is worth noting that if the UK Border Agency cannot formally refuse your application and, if they are not able to reach a decision on the day of the application, advise to lodge an application by post. The UK Border Agency can only deal with certain, straightforward and under the Rules applications during the same day service. The UK Border Agency's fee is more expensive for the same day service applications.
All visa extension and transfer of status categories now require biometric capture and therefore you (and your family members, if any) will be required to also attend the UK Border Agency in person to be fingerprinted. Also most of the visa extensions now will result not in a visa endorsed in your passport, but a separate plastic ID (BRP) card being issued.
Postal applications take more time to be considered with the consideration time may well be in excess of 3 or more moths. The UK Border Agency's fee is less expensive, if compared with the same day service applications.
In most circumstances we may able to prepare and lodge your visa extension, transfer of your visa into a new passport or Settlement application 5 days a week, Monday to Friday, through the local UK Border Agency Public Enquiry Office (PEO Solihull). It does not normally matter where in the UK you live and how many dependent family members you have, as you are currently are not required to attend during your Settlement application is your application is represented by our lawyers. Please note that due to the high demand for such a service, clients are encouraged to contact our firm as soon as practically possible.
Alternatively, we can prepare and lodge your applications by post.
