Default Spouse Visa Processing Times in Turkey

Hi,

Has anyone recently applied for spouse visa in Turkey? If so, how long did it take to be processed?

We applied on 29th January, its 10 weeks today and we've heard nothing...

The timeline given was a maximum of 12 weeks although they indicated it would not take this long. I know of two other applicants who received answers at 8-9 weeks but as I say we've heard nothing so far

I have applied my self last week in Istanbul and I also know couple of other people whom applied and received their apllication with in the 12th or 13th weeks. So i guess you would have your case done by week or two from now. Good luck my friend. Also 2 order person you knew what was the outcome? Was the app submitted in Turkey? And how long did they took?

Thanks for your reply. Oh no I hope it doesn't take another two weeks, this wait is just awful!!!

Unfortunately the applicants I know of who were answered within 8-9 weeks were refused the visa.

I'm hoping this means no news is good news. Best of luck with your application.

I believe they refuse cases if you submit 6 months payslips bank statement work contract letter from employer but not submitting P60. I dont know if this is right?

I imagine they will refuse if you don't supply any of the evidence specified. I believe Istanbul has a reputation for being very strict/harsh with their decisions...

Well evidence says you should submit Payslips, bank statements for 6 months and work contract with employer letter. Is the P60 still important even if you submit all of other evidence and it shows of earning more than £18600?
