Re: UK Standard Visit Visa Application Submitted - Cochin, I

Did you receive an email from the Home Office stating that the application has been processed? Or did you directly hear from VFS?

Re: Staying longer than stated - Student Visitor

Thank you. I have already contacted the GP. Regarding the aspect of staying longer than stated, should I write a letter to the eCO along with the application explaining my reasons? How do I approach this?
