@zemyrk
More documentation does help
When I got the refusal letter on the 18th of sept
I saw that the decision was actually made on the 5th of September
That was fast considering my biometrics was submitted on the 26th of August

Oh you don’t have to worry. You can still apply to the EUSS after 31st October, my solicitor confirmed that from the Home Office. Even if UK leaves EU without a deal, we have until 31st December of 2020 to apply to the EUSS. So you don’t have to worry about that, as a direct family menber of an EEA National who already has settled or presettled status.

Yeah if you don’t receive any such mail, then it means your application will be processed within their estimated timeframe, that is, 15 working days after biometrics.

What does that mean your mom marriage certificate? Are applying for your Mom
It means she’s applying as direct family member of an EEA National
I only provided my birth certificate as it have my mother's name.
That’s really good evidence tbh. Added documentations like screenshots of WhatsApp chats also help. Other documents showing dependency like bank statements, pay slips & others are also encouraged. They help make your decision process faster.
I added bank statements, proof of shared address from the last 7 years, cover letter and still waiting since August 8. I really don't know why they are taking so much time.

Hi I have got this and it doesn’t say it’s not straight forward it means it looks good ..........


Your online application has been received at the UK Decision Making Centre. Your application is currently being prepared for consideration by an Entry Clearance Officer.

If you have made a Settlement application (except for applications lodged in USA and Canada): you must ensure that your UK sponsor has sent all relevant supporting documentation to the UK Decision Making Centre in Sheffield. The documents should be arranged in this order: application form and relevant Appendix* (See below); English language evidence; relationship documents; maintenance documents; accommodation documents. If documents are not received a decision will be taken on the basis on the information that has been provided.

If you have already had your supporting documents scanned in at the Visa Application Centre, or if you have already sent them in to us, please ignore the request for documents.

Please note that UKVI aims to complete all Visit and Points Based System Visa applications within 15 working days and all Settlement Visa applications within 12 weeks of the application date. If it is not possible to complete your application within this timeframe a member of our team will contact you to explain why.

If you have paid for Priority Service, your application will be placed in front of the queue and assessed ahead of other non-priority visa applications others but may still take 12 weeks to conclude if we require further time to consider the application. As indicated in the terms of service, the amount paid for the priority service, as well as the visa fees, is not refundable if the visa application is refused or if the decision is delayed.

@ hazani
It means they have received your application and they are going to access it and make a decision
Pls be patient, it takes just 15 working days or more depending on the circumstance
But since u applied on 4th October u should expect a decision by next week Thursday or Friday
Pls be patient

Hey Everyone,

Following on from my previous post. We had an interview on the 30th of September and few minutes after completion of the interview we received an email saying "your application has not been straightforward and we will be unable to decide your application within our customer service targets. We are continuing to work on your application and aim to make a decision as soon as possible."
Does it mean that the wait is going longer than it should again?

Today is actually my 15th working day so fingers crossed. I got a not so straightforward mail on 10tg October so it might take a bit longer but hoping it comes as soon as possible

Yes Luisa, it means you might have to wait a bit longer. It’s quite unrealistic how you’ve waited for over 4 months for this. I pray you and your husband get this visa as soon as possible.
