February 2022 Immigration Updates
Suspension of priority visa services for all applications made outside of the UK
UK Visas & Immigration (‘UKVI’) announced the suspension of priority visa services for all applications made outside of the UK due to the ongoing Ukrainian Refugee Crisis.
UKVI will prioritise applications made under the Ukraine Family Visa Scheme, and processing times for all other visas are expected to take much longer than usual to process as a result.
Processing time for Standard Visitor Visa applications is taking an average of 6-weeks, as opposed to the usual 3-weeks and it is expected that the processing time for all other visa applications may double too.
All future updates will be published on the gov.uk website: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/visa-decision-waiting-times-applications-outside-the-uk
