The problem is that we need my wife's passport for registering the baby on the 20th of July, therefore we can not send the passport by post as this service can take up to 8 weeks, also we ideally want to leave the UK on the 12th of August for business reasons.
If my wife was turned down with the premium service, can she appeal and stay in the UK? Could we use another reason such as medical reasons for my wife as she had an operation?
Do you know if they will give her passport back the same day, or will we have to wait while the visa is being processed?
If we used use a letter from her private doctor that confirms my wife has paid for all treatment privately and she will be attending a checkup for mother and baby in 6 weeks times (the end of her treatment) with the return flight ticket two days after, could she use this to extend the visa on medical grounds?
