Dear all,

For those that attended your UKVCAS appointment during April, May and June, have any of you been granted ILR yet?

Moderator edit.

I understand HO has significant backlog it'd be nice to understand how long is taking them to finalise and application under COVID-19 circumstances.

Re: Heartless government to increase IHS from £400 to £625 as part of hostile policy

Moreover, immigrants have to pay IHS in advance for as many years as their visa application is (so for a 5 year visa is £625 x 5 x number of applicants; Visa fees ...

This seems to be the latest information. Based on the very last paragraph it may seem priority or super priority could be available again. Mind you, the 5 working days or 48 hours is only after the UKVCAS appointment, not after the application is submitted online. https://www.gov.uk/ukvcas UK Visa a...
