Hello everyone,
My application went from being considered to you case is being processed and today I got this email saying my application has being received and is being considered.

Is that normal?

Hi All,

I just wanted to share my timelines:

Applied from Paris, spouse is in the UK already.

Application submitted: 08/01/18
Application received: 09/01/18( The TLS contact centre in Paris simply scans the documents to the UKVI hence the speed)
Called to chase: 22/01/18
Notification to receive FP: 23/01/18

I submitted just what I was asked and not tons of pictures and WhatsApp logs.
Looking forward to be in the UK with my spouse and good luck to all those who are waiting.

Kind regards,
I am no expert but think it is simply because they might have mishandled it and just picke it up again. It may be because you chased them and usually they tend to be responsive when you do chase.

Hi everyone,

I applied in 26/08/2017 and still waiting... today I sent an email as you all do for a feedback about my application and they asked me my

Full Name
Date of Birth
GWF number :
IHS number
Passport number
Place of submission
Type of Visa applied for
Date of biometrics
Nationality
Applicants e-mail

and I sent the email but yes without an IHS number instead I supported my husband's nhs number as specifiying that its his number. So Im waiting now.... Its good to hear that there are also people suffering for this slow proces... we got married in August 28 and since september we are living seperated for this visa issues... I dont know why this takes so long and I dont think they have right to keep our passports for this long....

Good luck to everyone I also share your anger and sorrow

best;

DAMLA

Hello,

We are in same boat.

Any idea of where to get this IHS NUMBER?

They asked of that and I told them my wife do not need it because I am EEA national.

IHS number and payment is NOT applicable to EEA route FP applications.

The email sent out is a standard format for all applications enquiries.
