Has anyone heard back regarding decisions being made? Forums across different websites and on Facebook just seem to have everyone waiting and no one actually having decisions made.

It's difficult waiting. But I assume the forum is a small sampling.

I've seen only one post on the 2017 timelines.  I guess that's a good start.

Yes, just one day ahead of mine.  It made my stomach churn.  I'm quite encouraged, but it is nausea making.

There's two.  One require more info and one was the decision made email.

Hopefully you'll hear very soon then, rotten thing is the e mail doesn't tell you what the decision is. Have to wait another couple of days to get the passport back. Make sure you let us know here when you hear something please.

Another woman -who I've become close with in the last couple weeks- and I are just getting so so frustrated that so many people applying from Pakistan and Tunisia and the Philippines ,often to join a spouse that wasn't even born in the UK, are getting their answers so quickly... This process feels never ending and it's so disheartening to see that group of people getting so many decisions made and hardly anyone from the States getting ours.

I'm happy for those getting their information.  I have to imagine that others from the US who aren't using the forum are likely getting their visas too.  There are so many variables to consider.  There must be so many applications and it's hard to know how many are priority.  I'm not sure how they're processed, but assume they aren't segregated by country, and Sheffield appears to handle so many countries' applications. 

It's funny how at the end of the day, I still don't stop checking my email and refreshing my UPS tracking.  Just hoping tomorrow will be a bit more promising for us.  I'm missing my husband and am missing several work events due to not having my passport.  It's probably small potatoes at the end of the day, but it's no fun having such limited knowledge.    [smiley=clover2.gif]

A naturalised British citizen is just as much a citizen as someone born here.   ::)

How exactly are you paying for rent in London? It's illegal for you to be on a lease until you have a visa - unless your spouse is the only one on the lease and you have a letter from the landlord giving you permission to live there when you arrive.

Just want to check, just in case you have been given any wrong information, that you have the following:



Hi everyone. Stalking your board as I plan to apply in April after my husband leaves to come to UK to start his new job under Category 2 so I apologize for bringing something up from a page 3.... saw this and just wanted to check...we are about to be renting a home in Scotland and I brought this quote to our letting agent's attention...we just found a house and are getting the lease put together. She said Scotland has very different property laws than England, and was going to put me on the lease, but can leave me off and just do in husband's name too. I said to hold off until I asked you all.

Also unrelated question - no info on new fees yet on the settlement visas for April? What are they currently for both applying non-priority and priority? If they haven't gone up yet maybe I'll rush it :)

I posted in the 2017 timeline thread too but it is encouraging to see some communication come through instead of just nothing. Hopefully they all start to trickle in and we will all be on our way soon! I've never been away from my husband this long since we have been married and he hasn't been away from our son this long ever. I know it hard but it's not forever. Taking things one day at a time here. No response for me today but hopefully soon!

Is there a reason you are not applying for your Tier 2 dependent visa at the same time?  Best to have your visa in line with your husbands.  Will make everything easier.  Also your visas will be processed in New York, so you'll have a totally different process and likely a MUCH faster processing time.   :)

While the onus is not on you to follow the legalities of the tenancy agreement (it's on the landlord), I'd wait until you both have your visas.  Just my 2p.

No word on fees yet.  It's a bit bizarre!
