EXPEDITED does not mean after 2 weeks I do not have nothing
On October 30th, I overnight shipped my EXPEDITED Visitors visa to VFS in NY. Today is two weeks and I did not get my passport back. I have paid £5.48 to the email supplied as contact, they only requested my details a week ago, I do not get any response from them. I logged complaints on all the UK visa websites, and the response is that VFS is an independent company operating in the USA. Is there NOBODY that can Assist with this fraudulent, misleading company. Google ‘problems with VFS, and see how many clients have been caught by their misleading info on their website. Once they have your money, you never hear from them again!!

Priority Service
I submitted my visa application and paid a hefty fee for the priority service/gold premium package. I was told a 24hrs VISA turnaround for $1400. My travel date came, passed and did no receive my visa in time to make my trip. NOTE to consumers do not use VFS global as the first alternative to process your visa. British Consulate wasn't helpful and very careless.
