The UK now has 7 Premium Service Centres throughout the country. These have always been in place, but recently had their names changed from Public Enquiry Office (PEO), to Premium Service Centre (PSC).  The 7 offices are as follows:

Croydon Premium Service Centre

Liverpool Premium Service Centre

Solihull Premium Service Centre

Cardiff Premium Service Centre

Glasgow Premium Service Centre

Sheffield Premium Service Centre

Belfast Premium Service Centre

They all have different operating days and hours. The services available at each can vary. At the bottom there is a list of who can’t use the Premium service. Anyone who has a complex visa application or requires discretion will typically not be able to use it as the process is designed for straight forward immigration applications. If you need your visa processed quickly and can’t wait around for your application to be processed by mail contact WM Immigration for help with a Premium Service Centre application.
