Edmans & Co can offer our clients Premium and Super Premium “Same Day” services for most of the applications for leave to remain made within the UK. We can reserve slots with the Home Office for premium appointments in all designated PEO application centres around the UK. Clients who choose premium visa application service would usually get their decision on the same day, usually within 3-4 hours!

If you do not wish to wait for weeks or even months as most applications can take up to 6 months for a decision if submitted by post, then premium service will be an ideal option for you. The decision will be given to you on the day and you do not have to wait for your passport, as all your documents will be returned to you same day by the Home Office upon approval of your application.
