Premium Service Notifications

The UK provides various visa types needed for work or immigration. They also offer a premium service to get a same-day decision on your visa application which can only be booked online. The demand for premium services goes far beyond their actual availability.

To assist in the booking, I created a program that monitors the availability of premium service appointments and provides real-time notifications as they appear.
