Processing Times


Recommended Posts

Just reading this PDF from the UK Visa site with the processing times

http://www.ukvisas.gov.uk/resources/en/doc...gtimescustomers

Are the times for Thailand settlement to UK actually true?

Seems a bit quicker than i have been led to believe.

92% Settlement visa's within 15 days?

16% within 5 days?

I think they are actually quite accurate, I know recently people (including myself) have been complaining its taking too long but from what I hear is that they are very busy over the festive period. I emailed about mine which I submitted 30th December. They got back to me a couple of days ago telling me that since it wasn't due to begin until March 1st they would process it after they got rid of the backlog, something I found quite unfair to be honest!

I've heard of people getting them back within 5 days and I don't suppose they'd need to lie!

Just depending what time of year, how busy the embassy is etc

I noticed they said 100% within 30 days, well, they now have five working days or next year it may have to be 99.9 !!

Yes, a processing time of 15 working days or less is certainly possible, provided an interview is not required.

If they do want to interview then as these are allocated on a first come, first served basis there can be a long wait; possibley as long as 3 months.

They only interview the applicant if the paper evidence leave's an area of doubt in the ECOs mind; so make sure you prepare a thourough application and try to answer any possible questions the ECO may have in your sponsor's letter.

Thanks for the replies guys.

I don't suppose anyone knows of the period immediately prior to Songkran is busy or not?
