Arrow London Processing Times - Visa 461 (Kiwi and UK Citizen)

I'm a Kiwi and my husband is a UK citizen. We've been married almost 3 years and we've submitted our application for the 461 Family Visa here in London.

Since submitting the application, "global processing times" has gone from 7 months to 12 months so I'm curious to know if anyone in the UK has recently been granted their visa and how long it took?

The application was submitted 2 weeks ago and the money has been taken from our account - but that's the only 'progress' we know of...

It's so hard waiting to know so any relevant insight on London processing times is totally appreciated

My Husband (UK/Irish applied for a 461 Visa 1st Jan 2018 in London. We are still waiting with no word! The only way I know that it was reviled it that payment was taken a few days later. Managed to get through on the phone and they said the processing time is still as what is relflextes online but since the payment has been taken it means they are processing it....5months is a long time to process

Hi

I applied on 5th Feb 18 based on my husband being a Kiwi and yet to hear anything too. It is frustrating we don't know what's the progress like as we can't plan what to do with our work, school, house and all migration related yet. How do I even know if my application hasn't been misplaced somewhere?

Hope we all hear something soon. I haven't send in any med cert.

Thanks.

hi Jamesandkristina and Kiwi.in.London,

Have you receive any updates re your visa 461?

I read in another forum someone has his/hers done in 2 months in London last year. The posting is in auckland thread instead.

Thanks

Hi all,

First time poster. I'm a British/Kiwi citizen and my partner applied for the 461 in May 2018 off-shore to the London branch

We haven't received any acknowledgement of receipt of the paper application yet. Is this normal?

We have signed confirmation of postal delivery but now fretting that it's sitting on a shelf somewhere and not in a queue!

Thanks for any advice

We knew that it has arrived as the payment was taken out of or account (apx 1week after sending)

We apply in 2nd Jan 2018 front london and got assigned a case officer end of June 2018.

We were told we needed to submit more evidence about our relationship (letter from each of us and a family member)

They have us an email and number for further contact. We sent the extra letters in straight away and they said it is getting processed, that was now 6weeks ago so hoping it comes through soon!

Hello,

Applied in August 2018 (3 weeks ago) to the London office. I'm the NZer and my partner is British. We've applied under de facto relationship and have provided majority of evidence. We received receipt of application and now we wait.

Is there anything we can do to speed up the process? E.g. get a police check in advance?

Thanks

Hi LexandSam

We submitted a police check with our application although I believe they only last 12 months so I hope it doesn't expire before the visa is approved or else we'll need a new one!

Thanks for responding.

I assume it's standard practice and that it'll save us time if we get one done now rather than waiting for them to ask us for it?
