Graduate Entrepreneur visa processing time

Post by pueblopueblo » Wed Nov 29, 2017 9:54 am

Hi everyone, I am applying for a tier 1 graduate entrepreneur visa sponsored by my university. I have submitted all the paper work and had my biometrics done this week at the post office.

Just wondering what peoples experiences have been with processing times for this visa? The official timeline is up to 8weeks but I have talked to some people who did the same program as me last year from another university and they got their visa within 2 weeks after biometrics.

What has been peoples experience here? I'm hoping to be able to get my passport back before christmas to visit home.

I got mine around 3-4 weeks after biometrics. My second-year extension of the graduate entrepreneur took slightly longer

I got mine within 5 weeks from submission and I think my Biometric letter came at 3-week point

Hi, I submitted my T1 GE visa application (extension) on 21st Oct, 2017. Bio enrolled on 27 Oct.
I'm still waiting for the decision.

Anyone knows how to check the visa application status?


Cheers

Hi,
Have you got your visa and how long it took? I have applied since 20 December 2017 but till now haven’t heard anything from HO. I submitted my biometrics 4th January 2018 but after that nothing heard. I am wondering it’s nearly 8 weeks now how long it will take.

Every application is different and will be decided on its own time frame. You must wait to hear back from HO
