Default Super Priority Service from USA?

Is the super priority service available when applying for a spouse visa from the UK? And do you have to use VFSGlobal to access it? I'm confused about VFS. Do you need them to help process your visa or can you just do it on your own directly?

TIA!

No, you can't do it yourself you have to go through either VFS or an ASC office (see above)

You'll have to enquire at the office which carries out your bio appointment.

Your two options are standard or priority when applying for settlement visas.

Thank you. My first visa was refused because of financial reasons. Now we have sold our house and have $ in the bank so will reapply again. It does caution you against using priority if you've already been refused as the process can take longer, but it would probably still be faster than standard, correct?

In this day and age I'm not certain priority is much faster and, yes, you are correct, having already been refused spending money on priority service is not recommended.

Thank you, SanDiegogirl ! Can you explain why you think this? In this day and age I'm not certain priority is much faster and, yes, you are correct, having already been refused spending money on priority service is not recommended.

Thank you, SanDiegogirl and BritInParis! Also, do either of you know how long it usually takes to schedule biometrics after they've received your visa application? And does it matter if you do standard or priority when it comes to biometrics scheduling?
