UKVI launches Super Priority Visa (SPV) service in Jakarta

The UK Visa & Immigration services (UKVI) is offering a Super Priority Visa (SPV) to customers in Jakarta, Indonesia. The SPV is an optional, paid service that customers in select locations around the world can purchase, in addition to the visa fee, to receive a faster decision on their visa application.

This is the first time customers in Jakarta will be able to take advantage of the optional service.

What to Expect
  • Customers who choose SPV will be able to receive a decision on their UK visa application by the end of the next working day, if their appointment is on a weekday.
  • It could take 2 working days after their appointment, if theirr appointment is at the weekend or on a bank holiday.
  • It can take longer than 2 working days, for example if the Home Office needs to ask for more information.
  • The fee for the Super Priority Visa Service is currently £1,000, plus the standard fee for the type of visa being applied for.

The processing time for a Standard UK visa is 15 working days, although this excludes evenings, weekends or national, public holidays, and in some instances applications may take longer.
