Hello Everyone, details below:

Application submitted: 25th August 2019
Biometrics submitted: 13th September

Supporting documents were scanned and sent via scanning hub: 19th September. (we weren't aware of the new changes hence the delay in sending the supporting evidence)
Supporting documents received back from Scanning hub n: 26th September 2019
Email Confirming that the application is with an Entry Clearance Officer: 7th October 2019

Contacted with 'decision made' : Still waiting
Contacted for Collection : Still waiting
Collection made : Still waiting
Decision of Application : Still waiting

It's been 46 working days since my husband submitted his biometrics and we are still waiting! this has got to be the most difficult thing we've both been through. we regret not going for the priority service.

Please pray for us!
Thank you X
Good day everyone, it is day 48 today and just wanted to provide you with an update:

my husband received an email from VISAINFO.SHEFO@fco.gov.uk including the following:

"Dear xxxxxx

Thank you for your application for entry clearance for which you used the Submission Without Passport service. your application has now been assessed, please submit your passport to the Visa Application Centre where you submitted your application....."

We are assuming that his visa has been granted, hence the request to submit his passport in

we are happy but will be ecstatic once we see his actual visa on his passport.

He'll be submitting his passport tomorrow to the visa centre and I will update you all accordingly, best of luck for everyone

H
Hello, Everyone, I'm here with an update

My husband has been contacted via email that passport is ready for collection
Contacted for Collection : Thursday 28th November

He will be collecting tomorrow Friday 29th November.

I will come back with an update shortly.

Please make Dua for us
H

Good Morning Everyone,

As promised, i'm here with an update. My husband has collected his passport and alhamdulillah he has been granted his visa.

It is day 55 since he submitted his biometrics (working days of course), it has been one of the most difficult tests of our lives, it taught us patience and tolerance. Having said that, please please if you are in the process of applying and can afford it go for priority service. all this waiting has knocked months of my life.

his visa validity is from 22/11/2019 -- 22/12/2019

we are so happy and wish for everyone waiting still for the very same, best of luck to you all.

Have a blessed Friday

H

Application type: Spouse visa for my wife (settlement)
Priority level: Priority
Started application online: 23rd October 2019
Biometrics: 7th November 2019.
Application with ECO for final decision email: 21st November 2019
Email confirmation from ECO: 2nd December 2019
Collection of passport: 2nd December 2019

A lot of people have said this already but if you can afford the priority services please go for it. Alhamdulillah, everything happened in 23 days but I did pay a lot of money for this service so I expected the results to be fast.

Advice for anyone doing the application right now, start it early don't leave it too late otherwise you'll have to pay for priority for everything.
