This is in accordance with the standard processing period as prescribed by the UK government which is 60 working days.
According to the UK government website, the “…UK Visas & Immigration is committed to offering the best possible service and to processing your application as quickly as possible. The tool gives processing time in working days, excluding weekends and public holidays.”
For UK Settlement Visas (UK Souse Visa and UK Fiancée Visa) majority of the applications are processed within 60 working days.
The following data (as lifted from the UK Embassy website) were derived from decisions made for the period covering June 2016:
Issues like sufficiency of documents (completeness or inadequacy), volume of applicants applying at the same period, are only some of the essential issues, which must be considered by the applicants for the UK Spouse Visa and UK Fiancée Visa.
ECO-Friendly would also like to emphasize that the embassy does not guarantee that the decision for the application shall be released within the abovementioned period.
According to the UK government website, the embassy concerned does not assure that the decision shall be released within a particular time since each application for the UK Spouse Visa or UK Fiancée Visa are evaluated, studied and appraised individually and exclusively based on the merits and qualification of the applicant.
