We would recommend that you only take a ticket once you've met your Representative, because you tend to get called to the desk promptly after taking a ticket. If you are attending without a Representative, do take a ticket immediately.

You will need to stay in the building until your biometrics have been completed, and you have a decision. If you have a Representative, it should be possible for them to remain in your place. This whole process takes roughly four hours, though of course can vary depending on the workload of the Solihull PSC staff on that day.

Staff at Solihull PSC are extremely helpful and polite, and overall the experience should be enjoyable for you.

If you have a few hours between your biometric appointment and a decision being made on your application, you may wish to explore Solihull a little. For ideas, see Visit Solihull.
