In-country Tier 1 (General) initial application timelines

Post by geriatrix » Sun Jul 18, 2010 10:58 pm

Please do not post in this thread if you are in UK as an HSMP / Tier 1 (General) migrant and your application was to extend your leave in the same category. Instead, post your timeslines here.

Interested members can post their application processing timelines here for the benefit of others. This will help members to view the timelines at one place rather than posting the same rhetorical questions time and again (e.g.- Can some please tell me current processing times in UK / when will my application be decided upon / why is my application taking too long etc. etc.) and will help reduce clutter on the database too, so you will be doing a good cause.

Please do not forget to include the following details in your post:
1. Category changing (switching) from
2. Date of expiry of current leave (visa)
3. Date application posted
4. Date payment debited
5. Payment mode
6. Date leave to remain valid from
7. Date of biometric enrolment
8. Date passport / BRP received

If writing initial post before a decision / passport is received (i.e.- giving details of points 1 to 5 only), please edit the original post to update - do not create a new post for every update. This will help members looking for approx. timeslines to figure out end-to-end processing time of a given application(s) at one place itself.

Also, please refrain from chattering in this topic. To keep it high-value, please just read it and only post when you have something of substance to contribute (timelines only). All off-topic posts and posts enquiring about current timelines will be deleted without notice.


We thank you for your understanding.



regards
