Immigration health surcharge fee??
isn't that only when you've got your own kid your applying for you get it refunded if rejected?
Im not sure not knowledgeable on this so please tell me
never the less i haven't got anything refunded as of yet
You will get your partners IHS fee refunded if an application is unsuccessfull. All IHS are refundable if visa is refused. So can only good things!! :D
I see, If accepted do you get partial refund on the IHS or nothing no refund at all?
sorry i don't have any knowledge on this! so would appreciate it
I would hang fire just yet as our decisions were made just today
I doubt a refund would be showing in your bank account already the day decision is made maybe wait until next week

There is NO refund if an application is successful.

Yeah if successfull. No refund.

I asked when the decisions were made. They said we dont have that information. This is the first time ever ive rang in. Reading previous cases on this forum with children involved, once they request IHS payment for child, usually is good. I was asked to pay on the 16th Jan. Obviously got to think positive. Cant just stress for no reason.

Yours is sounding very positive then as they asked for the child IHS fee afterwards
With us we won't be able to tell
as on Home office website it says can take upto 6weeks for an IHS refund so we wouldn't know until we actually go on the day :(

I dont think there’s any point stressing ourselves yet. Hopefully we will find out end this week or next. I’ll just keep praying and Insha’ALLAH we will all get positive response.

I called to check on the status of our application on the 5th of Feb as we were getting anxious due to the fact that it had been 65 working days since my wife went for her biometrics appointment. I spoke to an agent who told me that a decision had been made but she cannot tell me what it is over the phone and that we would need to look out for an email but could not say when it would come. I told her the reason for the call was that it had been 60 plus working days since the date of the biometrics and she told me that the decision had been made in mid January so was made in their customer standard target and that the only reason we have not received a response is because there is a back log of applications at the moment but she did tell me not to worry and to keep a look out for the email which should come soon.

Yesterday my wife first received a text message to say that the application had been processed and that the passport had been dispatched and then she also received an email stating that the application had been processed so hopefully we will get the good news we have been praying for in the next few days.
