On 20th Saturday, I got a call from BHC asking for my wife passport/visa copy. I told that it is there in the submitted document, and requested to check it once again. Then they acknowledge it is there. Asked when I will be getting the visa and passport, but they told they cannot comment on the decision at that time.

Its been more than 15 days ( 17 working days in total) but still in processing.

Status Change Happened on 20th working day

Post by SriGan » Mon Apr 29, 2013 10:46 am

Update:

Status changed happened today(20th working day). "Your Application is being sent to Application Center. Please wait until it is ready for collection".

Since I have opted for collection,they are sending there. But still the mesage sound ambiguous. I am not sure whether it is successful or not.
Any idea?

Also, I sent an email stertday to chennaivisaenquiry@fco.gov.uk
requesting for the latest status.

Any one has idea about interview process or any useful information.
I would really appreciate urgent reply.
Kind regards
Hi

BHC only calls for visa interview (tier1 general dependent) when they are not clear about something, certain evidence might not be clear etc, this is good sign that they are willing to grant the visa provided something is cleared.
Just be ready with all details of your application and supporting evidences, she should get visa for sure. my wife just got her tier1 dependent visa granted today, i would be happy to assist you further if required.

all the best.

best wishes
Now it more than 30 working days ..........and no update .........today 1 week after interview............. :cry: ...........fed up..........

Hyderabad dependant visa timeline

Post by anandb » Sat May 11, 2013 3:08 pm

1. Country of application - India
2. City of Visa Application Centre - VFS Hyderabad
3. Online Date of application - 22-03-2013
4. Date of submission of documents - 25-03-2013
5. Online status (Application forwarded to BHC) - 28-03-2013
6. Online status (Application in process at BHC) - 2-04-2013
7 Application Delivered to BlueDart - 23-04-2013
8- Passport Received- 24-04-2013

Total holidays between application date and passport approval: VFS - 5 days, High Commission - 2 days.

Chennai High Commission took 17 working days to process after receiving the application from VFS Hyd.

I had to repeatedly pursue the case with Chennai HC as my wife was booked to travel on the 25th, and while they replied that the visa is in processing stage only, they sent a sms and updated website only on the 23rd, and luckily the passport reached on the 24th, just 1 day before travelling.

15th working day and no status change

Post by dovelee » Wed May 15, 2013 6:27 am

Hi syedimran83,

Let me know when status of your application change.

Today is my 15th day and still there is no change in status.

before applying for visa i called VFS call center people to get an idea how much time visa will take and they told me that average time for tier-1 dependent visa is 3 days if applying from west zone. 3 days were little unrealistic to me hence i called the callcenter 2-3 times again to cross check and i was getting the same reply ...if applied from west zone average time is 3 days.

is there anyone who have got dependent visa in 3 days?

i dont understand why VFS call center is misleading people.
