Found out what OC stands for. It is Overseas Country. It means that certain applications are sent overseas(ie Dubai) to be dealt with by the BHC in that country. Hope this helps A minor correction. The applications are being sent to Abu Dhabi, not Dubai. That is where the BHC for UAE is located. Al...

Yes, the visa processing times are definitely longer than before due to the move. I think, once they are streamlined, they will be all right with the times, but since they are in transition right now, moving as well as processing applications at the same time, it may take time. The reason for moving...

Thats really a trick question. If his financial statements are good, then he should forcefully mention the pregnancy, to get the attention of the compassionate side of the ECO, on the other hand, if his financial situation is shaky, he is better off not saying it. More often than not, its a good th...

Does anyone know what is the typical time and day for the status to change during a week?
The VAC receives the passports back for delivery from the BHC at 6 everyday. So, usually, the status changes should occur between 6-8 pm

There are two reasons for getting a medical. One, to find out, if you have any contagious diseases, and the second, if when you come, will you be a burden on the NHS straightaway.

I think, your reports need to improve before you will get a visa issued.
