Tier1 Entrepreneurs Extension visa

Post by ALWADE2016 » Sat Dec 31, 2016 12:24 pm

Hi Zimba,

Please I need help for my tier1 entrepreneur extension.
I received a letter from home office on 29/12/2016. Saying that,
"Although we would normally decide your application within eight weeks from the date it was submitted, unfortunately this is not going to be possible in your case. This is because your application raises exceptionally complex issues and we require further time to consider your case thoroughly and reach a decision."
My question is that mean I will be interviewed regarding my application.

My friend received the same letter but including that "this is because your application raises exceptionally complex issues and we require to interview you"

My time line was:-
24/10/2016 submitted my application
29/10/2016 biometric was done.
29/12/2016 received letter from home office.

It doesn't mean anything except they are taking longer than the standard eight weeks (which does not seem standard anymore)

An interview about your own running business for an entrepreneur should be the easiest thing in life...

Routine letter from HO. Nothing to worry. Possibly you both are going to be interviewed, so you will get a letter regarding your interviews soon.

Home office has expedited the process after October. I know more than 10 person who applied in October and got visa within 8 weeks. Only one team and others were individual applicants.

is it necessary that once the first letter is recieved for interview then they definately send the second letter or in some cases they dont even take interviews after the first letter is sent.
