Please do not post in this thread if you are applying from outside the UK.
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.

1. Type of application: (Switching / Extending)
