I too applied from Qatar on the 12th of August (no interview). Didnt hear back from vfs until 3 days ago, called UKVI they said a decision on my application had already been made. I literally couldnt wait any longer so I just showed up at vfs to see why it was taking so long and to my surprise my passport was ready for collection (i dunno why on earth vfs didnt inform me to come collect my passport).
My decision letter is dated 22nd August and I received no communication from vfs what so ever which is pretty damn annoying especially for the amount of money they charge.
So, I strongly suggest u go down to vfs and check if your passport is ready for collection...
Yeah it’s pretty annoying their lack of service tbh. I’ll most likely go to the vfs on sunday when they open to make sure my visa is there! thank you so much for letting me know!
Hey! Could you let me know if you got the passport? I also applied from VFS in Doha, Qatar and am eagerly awaiting the return of my passport. My classes start 25th September however I would really like to make it to International Student Orientation on 19th September, which doesn't leave many days to spare
Online application: 24th August
Biometrics + Application submission: 30th August
E-mail from Sheffield UKVI on confirmation of receiving application: 31st August.
I applied for priority and hence expected it to be done by now. Should I wait a few more days or try contact UKVI?
Any help is appreciated, thank you.
Hi! Did you get any news? I also applied for priority. It has not been that long for me, I applied last thursday, but the waiting is still killing me as I have the same problem: classes start on the 25th but the induction for my MSc is on the 19th. I contacted VFS Global and they told me they cannot give me any Information about my process.
Hello to you! Yes I did and I'm over the moon
So just a couple of hours after I posted this, I received an e-mail stating that my passport is ready to be picked up. I went there as soon as I could and collected the passport with the visa counterfoil inside it! The feeling was amazing and I was honestly super relieved.
Also, the visa letter alongside the passport stated that my visa got issued on the 3rd of September, meaning it took 4 days since I received the e-mail from Sheffield UKVI. It basically sums upto VFS doing an absolute poor job on contacting us clients once the documents are available with them.
To the people who have waited quite a while (especially those who know their visas' are granted), I would say pay a visit to your VFS and I am pretty certain that you will find your passport sitting in their office. Good luck to everyone! Hope to see you all on the other side
