That can happen. It is difficult to say how long you will have to waitramgoel123 wrote: ↑Wed Dec 05, 2018 5:19 pmHi,
I have cleared stage of tier 1 exceptional talent visa under digital technology. I received endorsement letter from homeoffice on 5th November. I booked premium service appointment at Croydon center for 28th Nov. Submitted necessary documents and waited whole day. In the evening, i was handed a letter mentioning that my application is valid but needs further enquires hence decision can not be made. They will contact me when decision will be made and no timeline is given. I am really worried as they have kept my passport as well as current BRP card. Can someone please tell me if this is normal or it happens in many cases. How long do i have to wait?
Difficult to say. Most probably it will have to do with your current visa and compliance to the conditions of the visa.
You can try but from what others have posted here, it hardly makes a difference.
I am yet to come across rejections where they don't give proper reasoning. Whether someone agrees or disagrees with the reasoning is a different matter. And if you disagree, you will be given an opportunity to go for an administrative review.ramgoel123 wrote: ↑Wed Dec 05, 2018 5:53 pmI am worried as i have seen other posts where it has taken 2-3 months for homeoffice to make decision and some cases they reject it without giving proper reasoning. Most of those cases are for ILR but i am still anxious. Does being on ICT makes my case stronger? Also, i will not be able to make any business trip as my passport is kept by them.
HO can ask for any question or documents and they routinely do so.
