Payment for Priority and Super Priority Visa

Please note: a few years ago, the UK visa online application form does not have the option for payment of priority service. Accordingly, an applicant needed to purchase the priority service separately. However, presently, most of the applicants usually pay for the priority and super priority visa fee at the time of finalising the online application form. Therefore, only a few applicants opt for paying the priority and super service fee separately from TLS.

TLS Connect Added Value Services in Turkey

Apparently, the TLS Connect is providing the following added value service for UK visa applicants in Turkey:

Assisted Service – TLS added value service in Turkey

The Assisted Service is for document scanning and uploading, which costs GBP 23.60 / TRL 165.00. Moreover, an applicant needs to make an onsite payment for Assisted Service i.e. at the UKVAC.

Express Courier Return

The express courier return service is for passport delivery to the applicant after application processing. And costs TRL 125.00.

Premium Lounge for UK visa Turkey

Premium Lounge is an exclusive service, which also provides for flexible scheduling and assistance. And costs TRL 590.00 per applicant. Moreover, for availing the premium lounge service in Turkey, an applicant needs to make payment at the TLS application centre.

Flexi Appointment for UK visa Turkey

The purchase of the Flexi Appointment service enables walks in to submit their application without an appointment. And costs TRL 500/-.

Keep My Passport

Keep My Passport enables an applicant to keep passport during application processing. And the service costs TRL 380/-.

Prime Time Appointment

Prime Time Appointment is for submitting a visa application after the business hours. Apparently, the service is for businesspersons and corporate executives, who due to business and profession may not have time during the office hours may visit the UKVAC for submitting their application document. And costs TRL 560/-. Perhaps, it is not as popular as the Premium Lounge service.

Form Filling Assistance

Form Filling Assistance service enables applicants to get help from the staff of the UKVAC to complete their online application form. And costs TRL 415/-. Perhaps, it is for less literate people, who don’t have the knowledge or access to the computing facility. Certainly, the staff of any UKVAC is qualified to give advice. Therefore, it is merely a Form Filling service rather than Immigration Advisory service. Moreover, the price of service is quite low, which in itself indicates the limited latitude of the service.

Group Service

Apparently, the service enables all members of a group to apply at the same time. And cost TRL 415/-.

On-Demand Mobile Visa Service

The service enables an applicant to apply without going to UKVAC. Accordingly, the staff of UKVAC visit an applicant’s home or office for application submission and biometrics. Certainly, the on-demand mobile visa service is a very expensive service. And is only for ultra-rich people. The service cost GBP 413/- (approx ₺3,064.46) per applicant. And the payment is through Bank transfer.

SMS Notification

The SMS notification service enables an applicant to get an immediate alert (notification) for passport collection from UKVAC after application processing. And costs only TRL 7/-. Perhaps, this is a very popular service and most of the applicants purchase it.
