Partner Visas - London Embassy

Recommended Posts

As for me, applied 13/09/16 and am yet to receive any contact from a CO.

 

I did however front load my application so potentially they don't need to request any more documents.

 

Called them today to let them know I'm on holiday to Oz in Feb - was told I didn't have to tell them as they'll see the tourist visa I apply for. Did confirm however no grant will be made whilst I'm onshore.

 

I was also told my CO assigned is called Jennifer. Anyone else have her?

HI, 

 

Husband applied 18th October 2016

 

uploaded all info that was needed. 

 

He hasn't done his medical or police check yet. 

 

Called Europe centre on Friday and they said he had a C/O and they were looking at his application and will be in contact soon for his medical and just to sit tight. 

 

Hoping for a permanent visa. We are together 15 years, married 10 with 2 kids who are now Australian Citizens and have their passports.

We applied 9th November, living in the UK so via London.  I am Australian, husband British, we have been together 12 years and married 6.  No contact from a CO and when I spoken to them two weeks ago was told that noone has been assigned yet.

 

Starting to feel anxious two months without anything other than an acknowledgement.

 

Anyone else found out how long it usually takes for a CO to be assigned?

I'm just over 4 months in and have had no contact from anyone. Only found out I had a CO as I called them 2 weeks ago to query.

 

If you've no already done your police check and medical then the usual wait for a request is around 4 months....don't hold me to that.

 

Last couple of months grants have been made around the 5 month mark. Again though, this could've changed for us and might be longer again.

Submitted application 20th Jan 2017... I guess the waiting game begins!

 

Really didn't enjoy the website user experience though, it's not so straight forward but oh well.

 

Bit of background, I'm Aussie and my partner is British. We've been de-facto and living together for 3 years in London. Our case isn't very complicated and we've got loads of evidence so I'm hoping there shouldn't be any issues. 

 

One question though, what evidence type did you pick for the history of relationship statements? The document checklist says we require to submit relationship statements but can't seem to see an 'evidence type' that matches this. Does anyone know if they are super strict on how we submit our evidence documents?

Hi All

 

My hubby applied on the 14th November 2016.

 

We have just done his medical (no request as of yet, just decided to front load) and that's basically it.

 

We will be eligible for the 100 as we have been married 7 years, 3 kids and I'm an Aus citizen. 

 

We are really hoping for a grant before the end of July as have a holiday planned in Perth for a month, and would like to use this as activation trip.

 

The waiting continues...

Trying to remember from my form but think the history of the relationship stuff was in the application form rather than an evidence document. Anyone else?

Yeah your right, I have a longer statement to attach as further evidence but have now realised there are a few options of where I can attach it. Will probably add it as evidence of de-facto. 

 

Thanks everyone, sorted now!

Hi guys, you probs seen me on the other thread but like the idea of a British one to follow. I am Aussie and my defacto of 4+ years is British. We applied 26th Aug 16 and have completed everything including medical last week but still no contact. Hopefully we won't be waiting the full 10-15 months as they specified.

Hi Everyone!

 

I lodged my Prospective Marriage visa on 25th November 2016 and I'm still waiting.

 

I've been engaged to my Aussie fiancee for a while now and we are planning to get married in Australia and stay there. 

 

So far I called embassy for an update and they told me that application was received and they can see that I am uploading documents, so for now I have to wait. 

 

How long were you usually waiting for a case officer to be assigned?

 

Have a great day!

Kay

Hi Rach...

 

There's a few of us applied September either on or approaching 5 months.

 

Assuming everything else pretty straightforward for your application?

 

Strange you had no CO contact after the 4 months stage to request additional documents too as that seems the norm.
