The UKVI confirmed that from 12th August 2022 priority services for new Entry Clearance applications under the sponsored work routes will be re-installed. This include applications under the Skilled Worker and Global talent routes.

The priority processing for applications lodged outside the UK was suspended in March 2022 in response to the crisis in Ukraine causing backlogs and delays in applications processing across offshore visa centres.

Priority and super priority services for new family Entry Clearance applications remain suspended until further notice.
