hi Mehmood87
did u husband get visa?
ur husband and my wife at same time, received case not straightforward emails, now waiting for final decision after submitting english language certificate.
Hi Hasaan

Hubby’s Visa refused!!

Stupid and silly reasons given.. marriage doesn’t look sufficient to them, less proof of relationship crap!

I honestly don’t believe them! After a 10 months wait this is the response I get?!😡

I gave birth to our child yesterday.. I actually thought I was going to hear a second good news😭

What do U guys suggest.. new application or appeal??
I'm soo sorry to hear this friend.
Stay strong and fight for your right! ✋🏻

Hey guys.. have recieved an survey email from uk visa office. But not had a decision made on spouse application? This happened to anyone else before? Don’t u get the survey email after a decision????


I did get a survey email from last September.
Nothing happen really after I send my reply to that survey email. Untill now still waiting.😐🤐
But not losing hope🙏🙏🙏🙏
This is so weird. Why would they send survey email without an application being processed.

I clicked on link to fill in survey too. First question asked was if I had a decision made in last 3 months? Answered NO!! After that it said survey is complete. But in the email it said the survey takes 10 mins to complete. Was it the same for u Ace87?

Hi

Thanks guys.. I will go see my solicitor and see what he recommends.

They are rejecting many hold cases. It’s like they are rushing and not going through them properly!

Not fair

Given that this topic is a 'Still waiting for a decision......' one, can members please NOT post detailed posts about refusals which then inevitably gets more posts asking questions and so on and so on.

If you have had received a refusal, please start your own new topic with the details, simply update in this topic that it was refused and provide the link of your refusal topic where members can ask questions or offer advice.

This topic will be locked if it continues to veer off the subject of those still waiting for a decision.
This is the final time members will be asked not to post lengthy to an fro posts regarding refusals. If this topic is going to be turned into a refusal one, it will be locked.

Hi everyone,
Good to see that more decisions are competing out. All people who are updating their decisions are mostly old hold cases. Is there anyone who recently hear any updates from August/September?

Hi

Is there anyone who recently hear any updates from June/July? I didn't see any updates from June or July applications. I made my online application on end of June and did my Biometrics on first week of July. But didn't hear anything from home office yet. I have completed HO for check my application status and they said still in processing. Hopefully we all get visa soon and hear good news from HO soon.

To those awaiting,
I applied in June 17', got the 31st October mail & got visa on 8th Nov, however letter was dated 1st Nov hence decision was indeed made by 31st Oct.

All sorted, I had to wait about less than 5 months (2 months extra), mine wasn't a priority application. Unfortunately i had to wait till end of 60 days to pull available levers and get external help.

I would request all of you to start looking for options and reach out for external help rather than grieving/complaining here. Also request your spouse to continue to live a normal life and not to choke on visa arrival. Best option is to ask your employer to file for the visa(you pay them if necessary) - much better than standing in a general Q.

Best wishes & a very good bye- Patience19

hi M2sam,

no I didn't go down to see her.. I just phoned her up and passed my details on and a week later asked my local counsellor to follow up. the case wasn't escalated as the MP was told my application was in final stages.
I really for use guys that haven't heard anything even though some of ur applications are over 6 months. Inshallah use will hear frm UKVI soon. I'm sure of it.. stay patient n KEEP FAITH!!!
