UKVI

When an applicant may experience delays?

Although, the UK visa processing time service standards are the same for all countries and types of non-settlement visa applications. However, the UK visa processing time service standards are only maintainable in case of a straightforward application. Therefore, if an application is categorized as non-straightforward or complex then UK visa processing time for a standard (normal), priority or super-priority application may experience a delay beyond the 15, 5 and next working day service standards.

UK Visa Processing Time Limits for Complex Applications

In fact, there are no time limits for deciding a non-straightforward (complex) UK visit, tourist, family, business visitor, Tier 1 Entrepreneur, Tier 2 work, Tier 4 student, Tier 5 and any other non-settlement visa application. If the ECO has doubts about the purpose, intentions, credibility or frequency of visits then may institute verification checks. Accordingly, can only make a final decision only after the verification process is completed. Therefore, a non-straightforward application due to administrative checks and verifications may even delay beyond 12 weeks or 60 working days. However, even in case of a delay, there is still no correlation between the processing time and the final outcome.

When people start thinking that UK visa is getting delayed?

Since more than 90-95% of standard, priority and super-priority visit, tourist, family, business visitor, Tier 1, Tier 2 work, Tier 4 student, Tier 5 and other types of non-settlement applications are processed within 15, 5 and one working day, respectively, therefore, applicants not getting a decision within these time limits start thinking that UK visa application is getting delayed.

You might wait longer for a decision if your application is not straightforward and more information is required before a decision is made. If your application is delayed, you will be informed within the standard timescales for your visa.

UKVI

Is there a relationship between timelines and the outcome?

No, there is no correlation between the UK visa waiting time and final decision. Therefore, an application might be either refused or decided successfully within a given period of time. Moreover, a well-documented application has a better chance to decide favourably in the assessment process.

What are UK Visa Timelines 2019 after interview?

Certainly, the UK visa processing time after an interview is not more than 3-5 working days. Accordingly, if the interview is on Monday, then an applicant may have the final decision by Thursday or Friday.

Can an applicant get a UK visa decision within 2-3 days?
