One reason why my application might be taking so long is that I have been living in UK for over 12 years, but I've only been a legal adult for 1.5 years! Surely not much to 'check'?

Does that mean if the invitation letter arrives whilst I am away, it should still be OK? See similar question - here . Thanks! All good t...
