Timescales

Your case/matter processing times will depend on the current volume of cases we are handling and the complexity of your case.

 

If there are specific deadlines applicable in your case, we will, of course, endeavour to ensure your matter is dealt with within the timeframe specific to your case. If we are not able to do so, you will be notified of this.

 

We, however, aim to prepare and submit all applications within two weeks of instruction.

 

Applications

The Home Office’s current processing times are issued online and can be found at:

In-country Processing Times: Visa processing times for applications inside the UK - GOV.UK
Outside the UK Processing Times: Visa processing times for applications outside the UK - GOV.UK
Unfortunately, these are not definitive timescales, and we can only estimate how long the Home Office may take to process your matter.

 

Appeals

All appeals would need to be prepared and submitted within 14 days of being served your decision.

The remaining timescales for your appeal will be dependent on the Home Office/HMCTS-issued directions.

 

Judicial Review

A Judicial Review application would need to be made within three months of receiving your decision.
