The Home Office is committing to processing applications as quickly possible, both those submitted overseas and in the UK.

To support this, we are working at pace with our UK commercial partner, Sopra Steria, and local partners/devolved regions, to expand capacity to meet the demand for biometric enrolment appointments from those applying under the Ukrainian schemes from within the UK. We have also ensured sufficient casework capacity is deployed, including staff being loaned from other government departments.
