This isn't really the right thread for this, but does anyone know if I can apply for the ToR before I hear back about the visa? Or is it dumb to apply since I don't know what the decision will be? I ask not because I'm concerned about my belongings that I'm shipping since that will take 5-7 weeks to arrive, but because I am also moving my dog and he's technically a "designer" breed (got him at a shelter with no ideas on his breed other than "he's a small dog"). I've heard that they've started charging duties on dogs and that a ToR needs to be done for them... just to further complicate moving, of course.

Applied for ToR by email 2 weeks ago and got a reply within 1 business day. Wish UKV was as responsive lol

Below was in the body of the email:

"Please remember your URN only covers imports which arrive in the UK within 12 months from the date you came to live in the UK."

Yes! It just arrived in the last 1/2 hour! Travel window is Feb-7 to Mar-9. Heading to Edinburgh very soon!

Congrats. Great that you got a forwarded dated travel window. Ours was from the day it was printed and took a week to get to us so we had 3 weeks to book and travel! Not complaining to have it and we were ready to go. But HO were having the last laugh I think! My husband comes in in 2 weeks.

Well, still no word whatsoever for me. My husband went to Russia today for the wedding we were hoping that I would get to attend. Masonjohnsmum, any word since you receive the "not straightforward" email?

Big hugs.  Days like today are tough (when you had a goal in your head).

We have not heard from UKV since the "not straightforward" email.

It has now been 67 BD since online application; 47 BD since docs delivered to Sheffield; 6 BD since "not straightforward" email.

Thanks, it was a pretty crummy day. Really just hoping to hear something before March since my mom will be in London and Paris starting the 2nd week.

Still two more days this week to hopefully hear something. Fingers crossed for us.

This is great news, but at the same time, honestly really *bleep*ing heartbreaking.
