It has been 16 business days since I applied in Istanbul and time is not going by quickly! The employee at Worldbridge said that because of many applications for summer it will probably be 12 weeks. Also Istanbul is the hub for the region and they are hiring visa officers and assistants. Saw, I hope no news is good news!

If a P60 has been issued it should be supplied. We did not have one to submit so we explained our situation in the cover letter.

cc9, good luck preparing your application! I will be sure to come back and update you all when I hear something.

Bethany, I know exactly how you feel! It's business day 48 for us and it literally feels like time has stopped! The waiting / not knowing is the worst

If there are any other applicants from Turkey out there do let us know your timeline, thanks

If they gave me a job my husband wouldn't need a visa

They posted the processing times for March, looks like not hearing before 40 days may be a good sign:-)

Thanks for the news mate. But it seems like out of 64 application they answered 32 of them in 10 days. Wow that must be the refusal i am guessing!

I am also guessing the 32 were refusals, it doesn't guarantee the remainders were approvals but there's a better chance some were which gives me hope as I have passed that mark:-)

I'm believing that it is good news! We applied just before Easter and within our 60 business days are 5 holidays pushing it back an extra week! Be sure to let us know as soon as you hear something!

Working day 53 and my hubby has received and email from UKBA, it says 'Your UK visa application has been processed'!!!

The email was received at 11.30am this morning but the online tracker hasn't changed...

I didn't know they sent these emails in Turkey, I thought you just waited for the status to change online. Does anyone know if this indicates good or bad news?!?
