External check are from various agencies and government departments, include police checks, county court, councils, workplace etc there are many checks no one knows, as homeoffice do it from applicant’s home country and other countries

Hi opo,
You means the same check from police and others here in the UK do or request from the applicant’s home country? If it is the case then its not possible to them make a decision in 6 months timeframe which they say or may be these checks depend or if someone suspicious i think anyway why they don’t call it international checks instead external check

I think they do criminal record check from other countries, no one really knows what kind of checks they exactly do, as they never explain that, its just assumptions

But I don’t think so they can carry on for everyone otherwise the decision may take more longer to decide and would cause a big backlog.

I am in similar situation. I applied in Jan 2019. As far as I know, I have very clean history. I have never broken laws in any of countries I lived, except few parking tickets etc. I work full time, married (BC) with kids.

Since I applied for naturalisation, I have not heard from them, except confirmation of payment email.

I have written an email day. How long they normally take to reply email queries?

Its still not much time for your application, i think its in early stages yet, and you might get reply in 3 or 4 months otherwise if more than that then no one can say how long will it take, but be positive, lets hope for good😊, email enquiries as far as mine they reply me within 2 days everytime

Thank you very much for your reply. I have seen few guys they got their case sorted well before me. That's what me worried. I am applying for new jobs, they will need to see some sort of documents. I also wanted to get it sorted then I can move on other issues in my life....

Please keep us update to explore the reasons why some of cases are delayed over two months

You have your ILR to show when you apply for new jobs also dont look at other timelines they all are different and depends on individual cicumstances

Unfortunately, my ILR is with HO and it would be nice to have BN while applying jobs instead of ILR.

Yes you are right, every individual case could be different but I thought my case is straight forward with no offence at all but life is not straight forward ....

I have dropped an email to HO anyway, lets see what reply I am going to get from them...

You can always ask your document back. I've got a new job while HO had my documents, I just asked it back with urgency and a few days later it was returned without harming my process.

Hi All
I am in the same situation! I been waiting for 10 months with no update. I involved my local MP but keep getting the same generic response. I thought my case was straight forward as I have no criminal offence neither in this country or any other countries. I also have clean immigration history. Please advise if you get any update!
Thanks

I been told they are doing some checks about my applications by contacting governmental departments and external agents and once all checks are done they will decide my application. But why checks would take 10 months. I requested Enhanced DBS and it takes less than a week. It is disappointing as I have a good profession and been living in this country for almost 12 years now. Paying taxes and servings the community.

I approached two solicitor to ask if any thing could be done. One said that it might be taking long because they do some audit for some applications. The other said that because I am from the mode east, they do extra checks. Not sure who to believe.

When did you last contact them. I am from the middle east too and I know my application has been submitted 3 months ago only but most applicants that applied during my time have already gotten it and I am worried it would take longer than I had ever expected.

Did you contact them recently?

Yes I did 1 week ago through my local MP. Still did not hear from them. Do you know of any one else from the Middle East who is still waiting!

Not sure why is the delay! Possibly backlogs or extra checks!

I have email them today for any updates, I think because of that I have applied as a refugee and I'm from Iran it would take longer for us than others, also there was a khavarej couple of months ago got his British citizenship and drove his car to London to run over people that made it harder for refuges to get the citizenship or more checks on background and stuff, I hope inshAllah I'll get it because I was planning to get married in South Africa on 9th August anyways we moved it to September , but if not, I won't be too sad about it cause I'm different now I have submitted to the destiny that God have written for me.

Hi all,

I am also from the middle east (Iraq) and I think this makes my application extremely slow. I have applied on 14/11/2018 and it's been more than six months since the date of my application without any decision made regarding my application. I do not have any immigration problem. I applied through the long residence route after I did my undergraduate degree and PhD. I contacted the Home Office two days ago and received an email yesterday saying:

"Dear Sir/Madam,


Thank you for contacting UKVI Contact Centre.

We aim to process all applications within 6 months from the date submitted. However, in certain circumstances this target is not possible. Please note that we will contact you as soon as we are in a position to take a decision on your case. You do not need to contact us again unless you need to report a change in circumstances.

Yours faithfully,


UK Visas and Immigration "

Obviously a very generic and neglecting email. I wonder if any of those posted above had a decision yet and how long did it take to get a decision? I am trying to better plan my life despite the uncertainty that this situation imposes on me :cry: .
