Good news to applicants for the UK Spouse Visa, UK Fiancée Visa and other UK Settlement Visa.
The processing time has been shortened from three months to a mere two months.
Under the official website of the UKVI, they declared that, “Most applications (for any UK Settlement Visa, whether for a UK Spouse Visa, UK Fiancée Visa, etc.) are processed within 60 days.
Based on the UKVI figures it released, their February 2015 records show that 97% of the UK Spouse Visa, UK Fiancée Visa and other UK Settlement Visa applications filed with their office were processed in 60 days.
The UKVI, however, emphasized that the, “… actual processing times may vary depending on a range of factors.”
Some applications were even processed for a shorter period. One ECO-Friendly applicant for a UK
Fiancée Visa had her visa released in a mere ten (10) days.
Based on ECO-Friendly’s experience, these factors may be in the form of sufficiency and completeness of supporting documents attached with the application, accuracy of the answered forms, the volume of applications filed on a particular day, and of course the overall eligibility and qualifications of the applicant.
ECO-Friendly, therefore, recommends that the applicant for the UK Spouse Visa, UK Fiancée Visa and other UK Settlement Visa file a complete and comprehensive set of supporting documents to avoid obtaining an unfavorable decision.
ECO-Friendly would also like to remind applicants that submission of all documents listed in the UKVI website is not a guarantee of a 100% approval.
As ECO-Friendly always say, the final result will really depend on the actual eligibility and qualification of the applicant.
