Then it appears it is an exception. It's certainly not the case in the majority of applications made outside of the UK, unless they've changed tack.

Yes, decision recieved couple of days ago.

Finally after 5 months wait, and paid Priority for, which was a waste cause did not get a decision within 4-6 weeks.

My wife settlement visa has been granted, with a 3 months valid visa, think it used to be 1 month.

after worrying for 5 months, now i am so relieved.

My husband and I applied for his visa from India in March 2020 priority service. Waiting to hear back. Has anyone applied in India and received back decision/passport? I heard that passport return service is now operating only but only if a decision has been made.

Has anyone applied for settlement visa from Thailand this year? We have received the email asking us to pay the IHS fee for child rather quickly, which we are wondering if this is “normal” or not?

We applied wife and dependent : june 15th
Email asking to pay dependents IHS charge : june 24th

If you are applying along for the child, there is nothing not normal about asking you to pay.
It's rather a good thing once you pay up the child's IHS fee out of the way.

We’ve just had an SMS saying visa applications are processed and ready to collect. Its only been two and a half weeks since the application was made. Feeling a bit sick with nerves.

Usually when they ask for a childs surcharge it can likely be a good news as ive read on this thread previously. So lets hope it is. Think positive and let us know what the outcome is. When are you/spouse planning to go collect it. I know someone who had their visa done within 2 weeks and others are waiting on months plus. So theres really no time frame for anyone just depending on luck and how theyve met all the criterias. Good luck

Thank you.

Well she got to the VFS centre and they told her they had already posted the passports to her home address. So we should know by tomorrow!

The visas were granted! And they arrive to the UK on Monday at midday.
It has been a whirlwind couple of days, we are still in a bit of shock how quickly its all been processed.
I would like to thank everyone on these forums for the help and guidance offered.
