I'm pretty sure UKBA's web site suggests it may take up to 3 months.crippled wrote:anyone? even indicative timelines for getting a sponsorship license offlate would do. I've read that it takes 4-10 weeks, but most people say it takes 6 months, is that true? any idea of what the average is like?
This is the timeline my wife's company went through to get a responsecrippled wrote:great, thanks shrutiblue. would love to hear more timelines!
an unrestricted CoS would be instant - not a restricted one which seems to be what most people need. A restricted CoS is issued on the 11th of each month with the deadline being the 5th of each month. Additionally, if a new level 1 user login is needed, it could take 3-4 weeks for it to arrive. This was the sole reason why I could not come back to the UK this month (a huge let-down for me!) in that the login details were delayed in arriving and so my company could not apply for a CoS in time for me.ShrutiBlue wrote:CoS is instant, you get it online right after filling up the form and making the payment.
My company applied for the license on the 14th of July and got it on 20th August.
