Alot of visas are being granted right now...they may just have backlog or be very busy at the moment...they wont actually give u a valid reason for taking so much time...so those of u waiting a long time dont think the visa wont be granted...just keep positive...duas for everyone insha allah good news for everyone

Anyone know if the travelling person needs the TB certificate with them? The home office still hasnt returned the supporting documents and the tb certificate is in that bundle.

If that doesbt get returned in time will i need to get the mrs to take another test?

We are in same situation....my husband is retaking the test on tuesday bcoz i still havnt recieved supporting documents back n it will have expired too...the HO do state it is needed for application but its not mentioned to show or be needed when traveling...so its better to be safe n have it done again...

Ask the Spouse if they have a photocopy of TB Certificate to carry it with them. Haven't heard anyone say they were asked to produce TB certificate at the ports yet. If in doubt, they have equipment to conduct the TB test on arrivals.
