Complaint reference: ABC-DEFGH
Thank you for your email correspondence of 27 February about applications for Entry Clearance. We are sorry that you found it necessary to complain about the service offered by UK Visas and Immigration.
You have expressed your concern about the apparent disparity between the processing times between Mumbai and Chennai visa departments and how that might negatively impact on an application submitted in Chennai.
We are currently assessing applications submitted in Chennai inside our customer service target. Applications in Chennai differ markedly to Mumbai in both volume and their origin. We do endeavour to process applications as quickly and as efficiently as possible. In addition, we are currently experiencing extremely high of volumes of application across all visa categories. That said, we are still continuing to meet all our customer service commitments, including the 15 day target for visit visa categories in Chennai. We would always hope to process a settlement application as soon as possible and we do expedite any compassionate or lone children applications on humanitarian grounds. We are required however to process straightforward settlement applications within 60 working days and we consistently meet that target here in Chennai. Applicants who see an advantage in applying through Mumbai as a result of their lower processing times, are welcome to do so.
When applying for a settlement visa, applicants are warned repeatedly that straightforward applications can take up to 60 days to assess.
