UK launches priority visa service for settlement applications in Malaysia

UK Visas and Immigration has launched in Malaysia a priority visa service to UK settlement visa applications.

The service gives customers applying to settle permanently in the UK a chance to pay an additional fee to have their application fast tracked.

The new service aims to process settlement visas within 10 working days compared to the standard service of 12 weeks.

The fee for the settlement priority visa service is RM1300 and applicants who opt for the service will be required to pay when they visit the visa application centre to submit their application.

British High Commissioner to Malaysia Simon Featherstone said: “Our new priority visa service for settlement applications is part of our continued push to improve the visa application process and provide our customers with added value services. Feedback tells us that many Malaysians who apply for a settlement visa would like faster processing and our priority visa service will provide this.”

A three to five day priority visa service is already available to those applying for non-settlement visas.
