I applied 3rd July 2017 and have yet to hear anything, I’ve just been granted my third Bridging Visa B to leave the country and that’s until the middle of February 2020. It’s definitely been a looooong wait, I came over here on a ETA visa so I haven’t been able to work in that time. I am a member of a 461 group on Facebook and a lady had applied 2 weeks before me and has just had it granted so it should be close to our turn. It’s slightly frustrating that people applying in London, Auckland etc are having it granted within 6/12 months! Just keeping my fingers crossed I will hear something soon but I do wonder if I’ve just pushed myself back further by applying for another Bridging Visa.
