On Monday 8 April 2013, the Tier 2 priority postal pilot opened to the public. The Home Office has confirmed that it will accept up to 30 applications each working day. The aim is for applications to be processed within 10 working days. Our immigration team has submitted applications via the new priority postal system and, so far, we have had all our applications back within this time-frame.
Unlike the initial priority postal service, the new priority postal system allows migrants to have their biometrics (fingerprints and photo) taken from post offices across the UK. For a list of participating post offices, please click here.
