Thanks i have sent the document by email today.

Any idea how long would it take for them to make decision after receiving this document?
From lurking around on forums, it seems like once they ask you for a document .. you should hear an outcome shortly afterwards

Good luck!

Hello,

Thank you for the dates.

You can chase them as many times as you want anc there's no harm in that.

Your escalation will not be forwarded to Home Office as I understand it but instead, the call centre pretty much supply the information about the application status whatever is made available to them which is usually standard.

Since you submitted your application online, it has been 51 days in total. There are two people on these timelines who used the priority service (this year) and their visa was granted on the 54th and 57th day since they submitted their online applications.

Hi Y123M
You got it wrong bro, it says 12 weeks not 60 working days???
So it's 98 days.... Since biometric and over 100 days since online application.

Hope you understand the basic.

Kindest Regards
