A Truly Bespoke Service?

In need of an extension to your Tier 2 or Tier 4 visa?* Got £15,000 to spare? Then you can be fast-tracked with UKBA's new Super Premium Visa Service, which "will provide a high level of customer (sic) service and convenience."

The key features of the 'service' highlighted on the UKBA website are:
* customers can have their biometrics enrolled at a location of their choosing, including their home or business premises;
* customers can arrange a visit at a time and date of their choosing, subject to certain conditions; and
* we will make a decision on the application within 24 hours of the visit, if all the requirements are met.

However, you will need to obtain an foreign national identity card and this deluxe top-of-the-line fast-track scheme is only available to those of you in the South-East of England.

* Tier 2 work permits applied for by employers who need to fill a vacant position with a specific person and Tier 4 student visas. Also included are those renewing via the FLR(M), FLR(BID) and FLR(BUS) forms.
