Entry Clearance Applications:

Whilst the Home Office’s timescale for dealing with Entry Clearance Application can vary depending on the country of application, we would expect most applications to be decided within about 4 weeks. The timescale may also depend on the type of visa applied for; for example, a tourist visa or visitor visa may be decided within a short period of time while a spouse visa or other forms of settlement visa may take a lot longer. There are fast-track provisions for certain types of visas and we will be happy to discuss the options with you.

In-country Application to the Home Office:

The Home Office’s timescale for dealing with applications can vary depending on the type of application and the workload at the time of the application. Some applications have been known to take 6 to 9 months! The Home Office’s general advice has been not to make any travel arrangements when an application is pending decision. There are fast-track provisions for certain types of visas and we will be happy to discuss the options with you.
