The UK has introduced a new procedure for issuing student visas, in an attempt to guarantee that the international students wouldn’t miss out on their first few days on campus.
At the current exchange rate, the cost of this visa is £500 ($579) and a decision is made within five days of the time.
UK Super-priority Student visa
According to the government of the UK, the current exchange rate of the super priority visa costs around £800 ($927) over the regular visa application fees and you can obtain it within 24 hours.
Although the UK has mentioned that it is processing regular student visas in about 15 days, most of them have been waiting for a longer period.
Alex Ellis, British High Commissioner to the Republic of India, stated that “the students heading to the UK in Fall 2022, are offered the availability of the priority and super priority visas in a proposal to address the high demand.”
He also stated, "the UK has issued high number of study visas across the world from January to June 2022 and the coming academic year will get even more in number so, if you are going to study in the UK this year, apply for your visa now.”
Ellis said, "it is important to include the appropriate documentation such as, an offer letter from the university, the CAS, the TB certificates and your evidence of funding. You may also apply for the priority visa which is processed within five days or a super priority visa even faster compared to that."Read more...Tips to succeed in getting through UK visa and immigration procedureHow long will it take to process your visa to US, UK & Schengen?UK to remove all travel restrictions for arrivals from other countries
