No, it is not first-come-first-serve - has never been. Each case is handled independently and can take anything from 2 weeks to 2 years. Duration depends on a large number of factors. That being said, 15 months is indeed one of the more extreme examples. Although I am generally opposed to writing one's MP for things which are not crucial, after waiting nearly one and a half year that is beginning to make sense.RonK wrote:Not exactly first come first served, is it?

This idea also occurred to me during my wife's long wait, except that I was considering withdrawing the existing application first (and getting a partial refund). Then the second application wouldn't be rejected.RonK wrote:I guess the moment they realize that its your second application (am sure they will find out pretty much on the first day, when they enter your details on to their system; potentially with the combination of name, nationality, DOB & passport number) they will probably reject it.
