Changes to process for UK settlement visa applicants in Australia

UK Visas and Immigration is changing the way UK settlement visa applicants in Australia submit their supporting documents. From 30 January 2017, all supporting documents should be sent to the UK Home Office address.

Currently, decisions on a settlement visa are being made in 60 working days. Applicants have an option to submit their applications via the Settlement Priority Visa Service, which means that their application will be put at the front of the queue and the decision expedited.
