Timeline (Normal Application):
Online application submission: 06 July
Document Submission & Biometrics: : 12 July
(Interview was conducted, everyone in my country gives it right at the submission center. Was asked the following questions; course start date, why course, why uk, why the university, future plans. I am told if only such questions are asked, interview is good? is this true?)
Center texted the documents have been transferred to UKVI: 12 July
Email from Sheffield saying that my application has been received and is being prepared for consideration: 13 July

Fingers crossed :shock:
Nice, best of luck !

Hi applied online 28june
Bio metric plus interview 2july
Called ukvi today thy said wait until 15 working days complete application still under process

Called university they said my case is been use I have not recieved any second interview call can anyone update ukvi use case after first interview is it a good sign??.


Please guide.
From the information you've given, I don't see any anomalies with your application. You called UKVI and you've been asked to wait for the normal 15 working days. Counting from July 3 to now is 9 working days.
I'll assume by case you mean CAS. The fact that your CAS has been used is normal because a CAS number can only be used once and in case you have to (hopefully not) make another visa application with the same university and the same course, the university will have to issue you a new CAS.
Just be patient
Hi wiki thanks for your reply.

Yes it’s typo mistake wrote case it’s cas indeed just one more things can ukvi refuse someone on the casis on 1st interview ??i have not received any second interview call please update my course start is 1st August.
Did you get your visa yet?
Not yet still waiting will call on Wednesday to UKVI let’s see what they say my course start date is 30th of July.

Hello,
Applying from Dubai.

Priority application
Timeline:
29 June - online application submitted
3 July - Biometrics and handing in documents (( No interview, was told by VFS that I will receive a call (from them or ukvi not sure)in few days for an interview))
3 July - SMS from VFS that application and document was forwarded to UKVI

No contact whatsoever from UKVI regarding interview or application and today marks the 7th working day. I was told by VFS employee on 3rd of July that priority application from his experience that 95% are done in 5 working days.
What worries me is that they have my passport and family is planning to travel to the UK and Europe on the 1st of August for tourism, and I am afraid I won't make it. I have another citizenship but can't be used as its not Visa-free for UK and Schengen.
My question is, has there been instances were Visa is granted without Interview? and what are my chances of receiving my passport and visa before the first of August?
I am in a similar situation. I applied at the TLSContact center in Tel Aviv, and was expecting an interview. However, they just collected my documents and biometrics without any mention of an interview whatsoever. I applied priority, and they told me that I would hopefully have a decision within 5-10 working days.

Timeline (Priority Application):
Online application submission: 06 July
Document Submission & Biometrics (no interview): 10 July
TLSContact Says the documents have been transferred to UKVI: 11 July
TLSContact tracking shows the application was received by UKVI: 12 July
Email from Sheffield saying that my application has been received and is being prepared for consideration: 12 July

I suppose it is possible that they have chosen not to interview us? Or will we likely get invited in on a different date to sit for an interview?
Hi! Did you get your visa yet?

I am exactly in the same situation.
Priority application from Lima.

Timeline (Priority Application):
Online application submission: 01 July
Document Submission & Biometrics (no interview): 10 July
Email from Sheffield saying that my application has been received and is being prepared for consideration: 12 July
Uni notification that my CAS is now marked as USED by Home Office: 16 July

No further news since then.

Let me know about any updates pls!!

Since it is a priority application, I'm pretty sure you will get your passport before the end of July. And Yes, I have seen people get a visa without passing the credibility interview (though it was for a super priority application)
I suggest you call UKVI. Saves you a lot from the stress

I have received no email from UKVI confirming that a decision has been made, however, and the processing center's tracking does not show the decision as having been made yet, either.

Ok, so I called them and they also told me that it appears a decision has been made on my application a few days ago. No e-mail or anything with that news. Hopefully, we'll hear from them soon.

Hi Everyone,

Online Application: June 25, 2018
Interview + Biometrics: July 18, 2018

I still haven't received an email/SMS stating it's been transferred from VFS to Home Office, is this because I didn't pay for priority? Granted, it's only been 24 hours but from the reading this thread - it seems 24 hours is all that's needed. I'm also unable to use my tracking number.

Also, does anyone have any experience with applying for the Tier 4 with their passport being damaged? Mine has an oil stain through the vertical side of every page, my photo and every word remains unaltered but you can definitely see the stain. I've never had an issue with mine and have recently travelled to the UK with the same amount of damage so it never occurred to me that it was a problem.

Applying from Canada. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

We're almost at the end of July so this might be the peak season for applications starting
As for the damaged passport, I think your answer is in your question

I am now in the same situation as well, as of 19th July...my university's CAS portal said that my CAS has been used.

There is also a portal where we have to scan the VISA if we get it, and it was locked before. Now it is unlocked and says that you have to scan and upload the sticker here. I don't get it, does this mean by application has been processed? The same university portal also says that if it was unsuccessful, you will be sent an email with the reasons. I haven't received any... I am so worried now.

No further news since then.

Let me know about any updates pls!!
I'm in the same situation at the moment. My uni told me that they used my CAS on July 16. On July 17, I called UKVI and they told me that a decision had been made, and that I now need to wait for my documents to be returned. I have received no email from UKVI confirming that a decision has been made, however, and the processing center's tracking does not show the decision as having been made yet, either.
I got an email yesterday saying that my passport is ready for pickup. I will pick it up Monday, since VSF is closed today. Fingers crossed that it has the right stamp.

My overall timeline was as follows (Priority Application):

Online application submission: 01 July
Document Submission & Biometrics (no interview): 10 July
Email from Sheffield saying that my application has been received and is being prepared for consideration: 12 July
Uni notified CAS has been used: 16 July
Called UKVI and was told that a decision has been made: 19 July (morning)
E-mail from VFS saying passport is ready for collection: 19 July (evening)

No email or communication from UKVI or VFS about ECO being assigned or decision being made.

Good luck everyone!

I am in a similar situation. I applied at the TLSContact center in Tel Aviv, and was expecting an interview. However, they just collected my documents and biometrics without any mention of an interview whatsoever. I applied priority, and they told me that I would hopefully have a decision within 5-10 working days.

Timeline (Priority Application):
Online application submission: 06 July
Document Submission & Biometrics (no interview): 10 July
TLSContact Says the documents have been transferred to UKVI: 11 July
TLSContact tracking shows the application was received by UKVI: 12 July
Email from Sheffield saying that my application has been received and is being prepared for consideration: 12 July

I suppose it is possible that they have chosen not to interview us? Or will we likely get invited in on a different date to sit for an interview?

Stay positive, I think you got it. Most rejected people are sent emails...
