hi everyone,

Just wondering if this is normal. I applied on 1st April 2015 through NCS. The application arrived to HO the next day. However no payment has been taken from my account yet (it's been almost 3 weeks). Is this normal? Is anyone else experiencing this?

Payments for Feb/Mar applications seemed to come out within a week max. Maybe HO is experiencing a backlog?

Thanks

Dear April Applicants,

Found something interesting in March 2015 timeline:

https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/ ... 1.pdf.html

According to response, checks are conducted first and then our applications are forwarded to the caseworkers.

99.5% of non-complex nationality applications are currently processed within 6 months.

If you notice, some of the people who applied March end, got their fees cleared by HO just a day or 2 days ago . So seems like the average fee clearance timeframe is approximately 3 weeks from the day HO receives the application.

So I would give atleast 3 weeks for fee clearance from the day HO receives our application.

Hope it helps!
