Hi all,
1) I have applied for tier 2 visa on 5th of April 2017.
2) I have enrolled for biometric on 25th of April 2017.
3) I have checked my Visa application online but it showing Awaiting a Decision. my application was last updated on 11th of April 2017 in their website

4) My application was sent by standard postal which should receive a decision by 8 weeks if not UKVI supposed to let me know why there is a delay, unfortunately I have not heard anything from them since I enrol for Biometric.
