immigration solicitors:
same day service

‘Premium’ Service

For many types of straight forward application (for extensions of stay, ‘switching’ and settlement) the UK Border Agency offers a same day ‘premium’ service allowing applications to be made in person at one of its 7 public enquiry offices situated in Belfast, Cardiff, Croydon, Glasgow, Liverpool, Sheffield and Solihull (Birmingham).

The ‘premium’ service is not available for cases which are considered complex or are not covered by the Immigration Rules

In addition, public enquiry offices will also not consider applications from individuals who have been given discretionary leave to remain or humanitarian protection; those with a poor immigration history; those applying for permanent residence on the basis of 10 or 14 years' residence; those applying for an extension of their visa on the highly skilled migrant programme; a business person, innovator, sole representative or investor; a seaman; a Gurkha; or elderly dependants.

Third Party Representatives’ Same-day Service

If you wish to use the same day premium service but are unable to attend the public enquiry office in person you can instruct us to submit the application on your behalf.

TM Fortis Solicitors are registered with the UK Border Agency to use its third-party representatives' same-day service which enables us to submit cases on behalf of our clients on specific designated days or by appointment.

As with the ‘premium’ service, the public enquiry offices will only deal with straightforward applications which do not require further enquiries.

We will offer the third-party representatives' same-day service to you if appropriate.
