Welcome to immigrationboards.com!
Most of the wait is for biometrics invitation letter.
I've been waiting for it for about 5-6 weeks!
Then you need to book appointment.
I applied for this visa about 2 months ago, attended biometrics about a week ago. I think they will review my application during this week. They process this visas quite quickly but only AFTER you passed biometrics. It take from 2 days to two months to receive biometrics letter (based on other forum messages). I've been waiting for quite a while to receive this letter and then the nearest appointment for biometrics was about 3 weeks away!
So, in total, I think I will be lucky if I get it after two and half months, if lucky...
LOL and today UKBA site states that they are considering the cases for individuals who have done biomatrics before 01 March. few days back, they were considering the cases prior to 26th of Feb.thati wrote:I have applied for tier1 entrepreneur visa on 1st Feb 2012

I applied on 10 January. Still waiting.kirandb wrote: I applied 18 th Jan .. took biometric on 31st Jan.
I applied inside UK. It's not really a delay yet because if I receive it this week or next week, it would be in line with processing times more or less.did you apply inside UK ? Does delay relate to something wrong with the documents ??
Last week it was written that they consider applications who gave biometrics a week earlier.We are currently considering applications where the applicant attended a biometric appointment on or before 1 March.
I think it means that 75% should expect to receive visa maximum in 4 weeks after their date got into processing time paragraph.For applications made inside the UK under Tier 1 of the points-based system, the standard is that we will decide 75 per cent of applications within 4 weeks.
I'm in the same boat, I try to do successful business while I do not even have my passport. (I'm legally allowed to do it because I have dependant visa at the moment) It can be very frustrating. But I guess this is kind of tax we pay for making life changing decisions. I think British passport is totally worth it.I am bit worried about my business , as few contracts required my eligibility to stay here.

Well, it's approval letter which came today. Residence permit will arrive within a week, it's written in the letter.
I sent my application by Special Delivery on 9th January. Applied from UK, all funds were in UK bank.
