Post by anandpathak » Mon May 17, 2010 12:19 am

Hello All,
I applied for T1-General on 23rd of April 2010 at VFS bangalore without appointment.
Got SMS that visa is under process on 28th April and visa processed and despatched by bluedart on 14th April . Finally was happy to see stamped visa on 15th April.
Looking out for exciting opportunities now in SAP APO domain.
Cheers
Anand

UK TIER 1 GENERAL - ANYONE APPLIED FROM PAKISTAN?

Post by adeelsheikh » Wed May 19, 2010 8:46 am

Hi,

My wife and I have applied for the UK TIER 1 General category (based on the points system) from Pakistan. I am the main applicant whereas she is the dependant.

Our application was submitted on April 20, 2010 however we have not heard back yet. It has been a month. Last week we got a SMS saying that 'your visa is under process'.

Can someone please guide as to when we should expect to hear back? Especially applicants from pakistan and india. Any help or info on timelines in actual cases will be really appreciated :)

THANK YOU!!!!

No Body can tell you on when it will get processed but general timelines are 4 weeks on an average. The season also receive more applications in terms on visitor Visa, hence might be some delay.

I note from the timelines of last 15-25 posts that almost all the Tier 1 G applicants are from outside the UK. No one has applied from within the UK???????

Has the criteria gone too difficult for in country applicants?

Mr. Rizwan: I applied within the country for Tier1 General on 28th January 2010 and waiting for my documents back since then. I do not know why they are taking too long to decide? I am now sick of this wait and its killing me because its now four months since my case is under consideration and i do not know what to do? How to track my application? I have got refrence number from them... Is anybody in same situation as me? Any wise suggestion???
