Frequently asked questions:

 1.Can you guarantee a slot?

 No, we cannot guarantee a slot will be allocated. It would depend on the demand and availability at Home Office on that particular week. It is also beyond our powers and control as the slots are allocated by the Home Office. If any adviser provides you with a guarantee then they are not being honest as the slot booking rules are the same for every PEO representatives. Everyone PEO Representatives will have to send their request at 9 am every Monday for a slot five weeks in advance.

 2. Do I need to come to Home Office to submit the application?

 You do not need to come to the Home Office to submit the application as that would be the responsibility of the Immigration Lawyer assigned to your case for the day. However, you need to be present with your dependants to provide your Biometric Evidence at Croydon.

3.Will I get my visa on the same day?

 Normally it would be the case. But now the Home Office is requesting the PEO Representatives to come back the next day afternoon for collection.

4.Will I get my Biometric Residence Permit on the same day?

 No. Your Biometric Residence Permit and your dependants will be forwarded by post to our office within 10 working days by the Home Office.

5.What if you do not receive the Biometric Residence Permit after 10 working days?

 Our Immigration Lawyers will chase it up with the Home Office on your behalf.

6. Can I travel abroad?

 You should not travel until you get your Biometric Residence Permit

We have successfully managed to secure slots in our first request and there are times we have not been able to secure as there were too high demands for slots during a particular period of time. All these information are given for you up front so that you can make an informed decision of whether to use a Premium Day Service or not. In certain situations it may be appropriate for you to have postal applications only instead of a Premium Day Service, a decision which you have to take weighing your urgency, premium slots availability and visa expiry date.
