Same-day Premium Service

Reiss Edwards is regulated to assist clients with their visa applications using the Same-day Premium Service. The service is strictly by appointment; we help our clients obtain an allocated appointment with the Home Office and this can be done up to 6 weeks in advance or even as soon as within 2 weeks.

Same day premium services are particularly useful if there is an urgent need to travel with your passport and you cannot wait for the normal processing times. In addition, they offer the advantage of knowing the decision of your application on the same day you applied. It is however important to note that same day premium services are usually more expensive.

The same-day Premium service is an in-country application available for extension applications or switching visa categories. The Home Office fees will have to be paid in full at the time of appointment booking. The service is offered at the Public Enquiry Office in Croydon, South London.

Appointments can also be booked in other locations such as Liverpool, Birmingham, Belfast, Cardiff, Glasgow, Sheffield, etc. Click here for a list of all Premium service centres. However, we will have to in such cases, prepare the case and then the applicant will submit the application by themselves.
