Thanks for any answers
Hi Welcome to the conversation. Processing starts from the date you lodged your application. Did you apply by post or online. We applied by post and a few weeks later we received all the oringal paperwork back with a letter detailing our official lodgement date.

Thanks for your reply! We applied by post 4 weeks ago so hoping something will come through soon. We sent it recorded delivery so we know it definitely arrived, guess its just a waiting game just eager for it to get started.

We too applied by paper and had a reply 2 weeks later requesting some additional information then nothing really until it was granted. Good luck

Good luck to all you out there.
Congratulations that's great news!

A little bit surprised to read some people have been granted visas having applied at a similar time to us. We were told to hold off any health and police checks until instructed to do so... It's approaching 11 months and no updates. Hopefully our application hasn't been lost in the pile?!

London processing times when we applied were 10-12 months (now 10-14 months).

01/09/2014 - Applied online.
14/09/2014 - Case Office requested additional information that we provided same week.
09/01/2015 - Uploaded some updated docs.
29/07/2015 - No response since January.
