The Directorate of Immigration is obliged to accord equitable treatment when processing applications. Applications are therefore processed in the order of their submission. If an application for a residence permit is processed ahead of other applications that were submitted earlier, this will cause an unfair delay in the processing of those applications. For this reason, an accelerated procedure is only granted in exceptional unforeseen circumstances. The fact that an application was submitted too late for renewal, a planned trip abroad, whether for a holiday or for business, are not considered valid reasons for accelerated processing.
Please note that this does not apply to the expedited processing of applications for residence permits based on work in return for a service fee, see here.
