Most of the wait is for biometrics invitation letter.
I've been waiting for it for about 5-6 weeks!
Then you need to book appointment.
I applied for this visa about 2 months ago, attended biometrics about a week ago. I think they will review my application during this week. They process this visas quite quickly but only AFTER you passed biometrics. It take from 2 days to two months to receive biometrics letter (based on other forum messages). I've been waiting for quite a while to receive this letter and then the nearest appointment for biometrics was about 3 weeks away!
So, in total, I think I will be lucky if I get it after two and half months, if lucky...

did you apply inside UK ? Does delay relate to something wrong with the documents ??
We are currently considering applications where the applicant attended a biometric appointment on or before 1 March.
For applications made inside the UK under Tier 1 of the points-based system, the standard is that we will decide 75 per cent of applications within 4 weeks.
I am bit worried about my business , as few contracts required my eligibility to stay here.

Well, it's approval letter which came today. Residence permit will arrive within a week, it's written in the letter.
I sent my application by Special Delivery on 9th January. Applied from UK, all funds were in UK bank.
its been 9 weeks after my applications and 7 weeks since my biometric
Could you kindly tell me that exactly after how many days did you recieve your Biometric Letter? I have been running through 5th Week and havn't got one yet
