Return of documents does not indicate anything about the status of application. A lot people even got their BRP first and documents later. Just keep calm and patient.viseasypeasy wrote: ↑Sun Mar 10, 2019 7:54 pmHi there,
Apologies if this has been asked before. My fiance applied for her visa last month. I've heard some people suggest that documents are sometimes scanned at Sheffield and then returned. We haven't had our documents back yet. Does that suggest anything about the status of our application? And is it common for documents to be sent back after a decision has been made? I have heard some people suggest this.
If you have got the receipt of that envelope then you can track them yourself.
Thanks. I know you're on this forum a lot - in your experience is it common for people to get a response this early? I thought we'd be waiting right up until the end of the 60 working days. My other concern is that the documents still haven't been sent back - but perhaps I'm reading too much into it.
What is the expiry date?? A Fiance visa is usually issued and valid for 6 months.1) The visa is 'valid from' April 8. Does this mean that she has 30 days from that date to travel (therefore meaning the latest that she can arrive in the UK is May 7)?
2) The UKVI said that she needs to get her biometric residence permit within 10 days of arrival. Is this the case, even though her visa technically runs out after 6 months (at which stage we're going for the 2.5 year extension)? I've read that the biometric resident permits are only necessary if you are staying in the UK beyond six months.
3) Did other people receive some sort of letter when they received their visas? She just got the vignette, and hasn't even heard from the HO, only from TLSContact.
Presumably you mean you have NOT got them back. Suggest wait a few days as they might still arrive.4) I've still got the supporting documents back, and we need some of them to register our marriage. The UKVI said I should receive an email once they have been sent back - have other people experienced this?
