Settlement Visa Applications - INDIA TIMELINES ONLY

Post by CR001 » Fri Jun 17, 2016 10:31 am

To all members who contribute to this topic/thread, the following are the guidance to adhere to so that we do not end up with a timeline thread that runs into so many pages like the other one did and which has become a discussion thread, rather than an easily readable timeline thread :

1. This topic is for timelines and timeline updates ONLY.

2. ANY discussions, chit chat, question such as 'Any news for applications from Dehli...' ect, will be deleted and the user issued with a warning.

3. Most members who contribute to this thread will already have other recent queries or threads on the forum, i.e. 'Spouse Visa - Please Advise' etc. If you need to ask a member something specific about their application, click on their name, search for their most recent NON timeline post and ask the question there. You are of course free to use the PM function for this too if you choose.

4. There will be zero tolerance of any abuse of the timeline thread.

5. No posting of personal contact details, please see Forum Terms & Conditions (click), particularly point 5.

6. The Format for posting your timeline is below.

7. This topic/thread will be monitored daily.
