Hi all

we submitted our fiancé visa application on the 18 September and provided biometrics on the 25 September.

It’s been around 8 weeks now or 39 working days to be exact and aside from an auto email from Sheffield on the 10th saying they’d received it we’ve not heard anything else. Btw the online TLS tracker showed as received at the DMC long before we got the auto email (but from reading on the forum that seems normal with some people not even receiving that email).

My question is is it normal for things to be so quiet? What have others experienced recently?
Hey, my dates are the exact same as yours. Did the online application on 18th Septemberand biometrics on 25th September. I have also received an auto email that my application is getting ready for consideration but apart from that nothing else. I think it is normal for it to be quite. Just hoping for some good news within the next few weeks.

Hello guys. This is the timeline for my husbands application:

04/10 - Online Application (PRIORITY)
07/10 - Biometrics done in Tirana
10/10 - Supporting documents sent to TLS scanning hub
14/11 - Case is not straight forward email.

It is currently 28 working days. Just wondering how long it can take now that email has been sent and when I should escalate.

Thanks.
We did our biometrics on the same day as you and got our not straightforward email today. Have you got any updates?
Really, so annoying! My partner has a poor immigration history so I was expecting it. No updates but I am preparing to wait another 6 weeks :(

As I said on my post above, I called to check on the status and UKVI confirmed a decision was made but couldn't tell me what it was ( of course)

Yeah hope so too!!!! I called yesterday and all I got told was awaiting a decision and if they needed anything they would have asked by now. So guess just a case of waiting. Hoping it comes through in the next week or so; these last few weeks are getting to us now!

No response at all. I'm midway thru right now, mines priority but not close to 30wd yet. The only email we had was from TLS on the day of biometrics saying it has been transferred to DMC.

Hopefully you will get a decision before the 90wk. Usually if your case is straightforward only takes 8 weeks on non priority - but if its complex it will be 12 weeks or more. Complex meaning if they have to do checks i.e contact employer etc
