Can I vary an application using the same day appointment service?
Most people aren’t aware that they are unable to vary applications through the same day service and waste a lot of time and money in attempting to do so. At Westkin, we are honest with our clients and will tell you straight away whether or not you are able to use this service for your application.
Is a same day result guaranteed?
This service generally promises a decision on the same day, save for complex applications which may require further checks and verifications to be carried out. This means that the preparation of the application plays a key role as if the Home Office do not have all of the required information to process the application, they may put it on hold and request for further documents.
