I do hope there's some kind of engagement from the department at some stage for everyone without an answer, to show applicants that they understand the stress that applicants and families go through.

But luckily, we are not planning to move this year, so we have put the application at the back of our mind for now.

Should have at least informed applicants whether there has been a case officer assigned. Anyway, I am not sure if it depends which country you applied from that determines your processing times, is UK processing visa more quickly than other countries?

Hi Michelle, we’ve still heard nothing from Pretoria and have been waiting 18 months now for my Nigerian husbands visa. I’ve heard others from Nigeria and Zimbabwe have been waiting about 20 months now, so perhaps they are processing slowly atm...

We are into 14 months waiting and no word from Pretoria either. The processing times keep increasing every month so who knows how much longer the wait will be.

@papag my husband and I have decided to apply for a family sponsored visitor visa as we don’t know how much longer it will be and haven’t seen each other in 12 months. Will wait and see which one we get first!

@Waiting4eva thatís a brilliant idea. I am taking a trip to Nigeria soon to see my wife as well, itís been more than 12months not seeing each other.
There is nothing much we can do rather than keep hope alive. All the best.

Oh goodness that is a very long time of waiting. I am only 9 months into the waiting and unfortunately there is no light at the end of the tunnel at the moment.

It’s really sad how slow the process is, I have been waiting for 9 months, and when I see people who have waited for 18 months or more it freaks me out, it’s really hard being away from my partner for such a long time. I pray they speeding things up.

@Michelle and Sammee it has been a very very long road....which hasn’t even ended yet. I didn’t look at forums until we were at about 14/15 months otherwise the waiting times would have freaked me out too! We all manage though and hopefully we all end up stronger and happier on the other side.

Best of luck to everyone! 🙂
