Effective August 12, 2022, the United Kingdom Visas and Immigration resumed Priority Visa (PV) and Super Priority Visa (SPV) services for out-of-country work and student visa applications, which are available through an online booking system.  Work and student visa applications processed through the PV service are issued in five business days and those processed through the SPV service are issued 24 to 48 hours from the date of the biometric appointment, as compared to four to six weeks under regular processing. The cost of the PV service is GBP 250 and SPV is GBP 956. However, applicants should be aware that if they already submitted fingerprints for their application at a Visa Application Center, they cannot obtain retrospective PV or SPV services.
