Though it's my first message, after getting my visa I decided to comment maybe others might get hope thru it. My timeline is:
I'm EU citizen and my wife, s Nigerian. She applied at Abuja on 03/08/2017.
15/08/17: email from Ukvi informing receipt of visa application and awaiting decision.
20/08/17: not straightforward email.
30/08/17: I made a phone call to know reason for delay and was told that my application was escalated n would receive email from Ukvi, which I didn't.
10/10/17: I sent an email for second escalation n received the usual blablabla that they were working on it.
03/01/2018: sent an email for the third escalation, received reply, still working on it.
29/01/2018: another email but by this time I was fed up with the whole issue that I bore my mind in the email accusing them of being heartless n inconsiderate. I was really mad n I made them knew about it, of course without insulting them neither did I beg them as I used to. This time they replied that they were gonna pass it to the shift manager, never heard of that before then.
05/02/2018: email from TLS that decision taken n passport posted back to me. Didn't even receive email from Ukvi informing me n I was worried.
07/02/2018: passport received with visa dated 31/01/2018.
I'm so happy after this long wait. At the end 190 days, 133 working days.
I just wanna use this opportunity to encourage those still in this mess. Have faith it will soon be Ur turn to give a testimony.
Congratulations Dannyvlc! Thank you for the update.
