Spouse settlement visa (husband): Non priority
Application complete:29/05/2019
Biometric appointment: 20/06/2019 (appointments were not available sooner in or near mirpur)
Paperwork submitted: 03/07/2019 (paperwork was received back on the same day and confirmation email of the paperwork submission was also received shortly after.
Email saying that the application was sent of to the decision making team: 16/07/2019

It has been 40 working days since the biometric appointment (56 days including weekends) it honestly feels like forever😭

It is now the 15th of August and have not yet heard a response, still waiting. I have heard that because I got married at 18 sometimes the home office do extra checks so it’s just a waiting game. In’shah’Allah I will have the hubby here soon.
Good luck with all your applications guys I will keep u posted when I hear back from them. 💓
