I am on the same boat, I am going to extend my visa soon. And we need unrestricted not restricted COS.
My employer just added request for 1 COS allocation.
And like you said, I did read and found out that they allocated every year and I am not sure if we are going to get. Really worried.
Can someone please help and if possible JG12345 can you update if you know anything and I will do the same

My employer called and they replied by saying that it will take 18 weeks. It is just like other members mentioned before. I have told my HR about the forum and that she will start calling and sending in few weeks time.
And the only way to find out if they have allocated us a COS is to by logging into SMS. My HR did tell me that she would check everyday.
Finger Crossed. I'll keep this posted and lemme know if anyone has good advice.
My employer put in request on 11th Oct 2016 (yesterday) and she called today and they're saying 18 weeks. That's insane amount of time. My visa will expire in 7th of JAN 2017 and I am traveling in 2nd of DEC till 30th DEC 2016 that's why I wanted to finish my extension before December.
My HR told me that she would try to keep her eye on SMS and trying calling them again next week or so.

Any updates on your UCoS?
I have not heard any news on it.
Do let me know if you have any news and when was it that your HR applied for additional UCoS.
Thats the thing, I was not made aware when they applied but I am fairly certain it is around three weeks back.dragon098 wrote:Hi,
My HR called on Friday 28th of OCT and they were saying they can't do anything (like always). But they did say that email helpdesk if visa is expiry date is equals to or less than 14 days then they will expedite but can't guarantee.
That aside, one member called Srick ( his HR applied on 7th OCT, his visa was expiring on 24th OCT and he got his COS on 23rd OCT).
And for Hopeforall9 (his HR applied in 27th SEP, his visa will expire in FEB 2017 and got COS on 25th OCT without his HR making any calls or emails).
My has been 20days lets see how it goes. How long has yours been?
Hi can I ask what is the 28 days after expiration.dragon098 wrote:Harish,
Hopefully, you get COS soon and to be honest the earliest I could get was next week and within an hour the next week slot was almost finished.
However, you have choice select other visa centers beside Croydon. It will be close call but I hope you can get it earliest if not you still have 28 days after your visa expire and you will not be called overstayer.
Applied in early October, got it in just over three weeks.mul5387 wrote:Hi everyone in this thread,
Just a quick question. Have you received your Unrestricted COS yet? If yes, how long did it take?
