Likely Timescales

In-country Application to the Home Office:

The Home Office’s timescale for dealing with applications can vary depending on the type of application and the workload at the time of the application. Some applications have been known to take 6 to 9 months and others longer.  The Home Office’s general advice has been not to make any travel arrangements when an application is awaiting decision. There are fast-track provisions for certain types of visas and we will be happy to discuss these options with you.

Entry Clearance Applications:

Whilst the Home Office’s timescale for dealing with Entry Clearance Application can vary depending on the country of application, we would expect most applications to be decided within about 4 weeks. The timescale may also depend on the type of visa applied for; for example, a tourist visa or visitor visa may be decided within a short period of time while a spouse visa or other forms of settlement visa may take a longer to process. There are also fast-track provisions for certain types of visas and we will be happy to discuss these options with you.

In Immigration cases and in some other cases we can agree a fixed fee for the whole case or certain stages in a case. We will be able to give you an indication as to whether your case is suitable for a fixed fee after an initial consultation.
