Priority settlement service– New Zealand

From 12 August 2013, if you are applying for a settlement visa to the UK from New Zealand, you can have your visa application fast tracked by using our optional priority visa service.

We are informed that the UKBA aims to process all settlement priority visa applications within 10 working days when they arrive at the visa processing centre in Manila, The Philippines.

Processing times do not include transit to and from Manila as this will vary depending on the postal address.
