How long will it take for my ILR application to be decided?

If you apply through the standard service, you will get a decision within 6 months.

You can get a faster decision if you pay for the super priority service. This costs an additional £800 per applicant. Under the super priority service, you receive a decision the day after the biometric appointment – if that day is a weekday – otherwise a decision will be given within two working days of the appointment.
