Such brilliant news! I had been thinking about yours since it had been 8 months so I'm pleased it's finally come through! I have read other people who have also not received the 100 and have emailed to query and it was an oversight and sent through to them straight away so worth asking I'd have thought.

Congrats to you! I only just read your timeline and then this popped up so this gives me hope too that we will hopefully only have a 6-8 month wait!

Thankyou for all the congratulations 🙂 funnily enough, we got the email granting the 100 today. Great results all in all! Again, wishing all the best to those still waiting. I guess the changes they make in July are over now so they’ll get back to working through applications

I read somewhere that London is now also processing on shore 820 applications from Aus because Aus itself is so backed up.

Is it safe to assume that therefore London will be slower to process their own onshore applications or would there be a system to ensure that there’s a difference between on and offshore applications in London? Genuinely curious how their system works - mostly because it seems they lack one.

Also saw on a different forum that London is processing Madrid applications because Madrid had closed but have seen people on here have dealings with Madrid very recently so I doubt that’s accurate.

I applied for a 600 tourist visa on Tuesday (14/8) and got a grant this morning (16/8) so in less than 48 hours. Twelve months, multiple entry. Excited to be going back to Australia and wait out the PMV processing time on shore with my fiancée

Great news

I am hoping to do the same and fly out at the end of October, but I'm only planning on getting a 6 month visa. Can I ask what evidence you uploaded on the 600 tourist visa? I have read you need to provide financial evidence/letters of invitation etc., but can't see the option on the upload screen for this (only passport), so not sure if it applies to UK residents?!

Really encouraging to hear they have approved a 12 month tourist visa for an offshore applicant. I needlessly stress about everything lol.
